Warning: This is not just for little kids! You will find them DELICIOUS!
I just have to share a fun Easter tradition my family started when my kids were in preschool!
This recipe is easy, fun, and so yummy. It also is a great way to spend time together talking about Jesus! Read Matthew 28:1-6 for an excerpt of the resurrection story and repeat together, “He is not here; he has risen!”
Resurrection Biscuits Recipe
1 pkg. refrigerated crescent dough
1 bag large marshmallows
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a muffin tin.
2. Prepare a small bowl of the melted butter (for dipping) and another small bowl with the cinnamon and sugar mixed (for dipping).
3. Separate crescent dough into triangles, and place a marshmallow on each one (see image 1). The marshmallow represents the pure body of Jesus. As a teaching tool, children can dip a marshmallow in the butter and the cinnamon-sugar mixture to represent the burial oil and spices that were used on Jesus’ body. However, the seams of the crescent rolls seem to stay sealed better with plain marshmallows, so maybe just dip a few.
4. Seal the edges of the dough around each marshmallow (see image 2), and explain that it represents that tomb of Jesus that was securely sealed after he was buried inside.
5. Roll the dough in your hands to form a smooth circle (see image 3).
6. Dip the dough in the melted butter (see image 4).
7. Roll the dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture (see image 5).
8. Place each roll in your greased muffin tin (see image 6).
9. Bake for about 15 minutes.
10. Allow the “tombs” to cool slightly before children open them to see that they are empty (the marshmallow melts away and leaves an “empty tomb”)!
