Happy Good Friday

With Easter just 2 days away, and since today is Good Friday, a co-worker shared this recipe with me and I wanted to share it with you too.

I loved at Church the other day it says something about “Taking Easter back from the Bunny.”  I thought that was cute.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to hid & find Easter eggs and to think about the bunny, but it’s also a good thing to teach our kids the true meaning of Easter!

Resurrection Rolls:

Resurrection Rolls

  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 Tube Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (Big and Flaky)
  • ¼ cup butter, melted (you will not use all of the butter but it makes it easier to have enough to dip the marshmallows into if you have more)
  • 8 large marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish and set aside.

Separate crescent rolls. (Note: This is much easier if you can find the “Big and Flaky” variety. If you can only find the regular size, trim off about a quarter of the marshmallow before using.)

Give each child a triangle of crescent roll. The pastry represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
Give each child a marshmallow. This represents Jesus.
Have them dip the marshmallow into the melted butter and roll to coat evenly. This represents the oils of embalming.
Roll the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat. This represents the spices used to anoint His body.
Place the coated marshmallow at the short straight end of the crescent roll.
Bring the two corners up to the top of the marshmallow.
Roll up (away from you and toward the point) the crescent roll with the marshmallow and seal to make sure the marshmallow is not showing (or it will leak out when baking). This represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after His death. 

two inches apart on prepared baking sheet and place in preheated oven for the length of time indicated on crescent roll package (around 10-14 minutes or until golden brown). The oven represents the tomb.
Remove from oven and cool slightly. Break open or bite into the rolls and discover that Jesus is no longer there, HE IS RISEN! (The marshmallow melts and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.) Matthew 28:1-8 

I hope you all have a Safe & Happy Easter.  Remember the reason for this season too!
