A Yummy Easter Illustration....Resurrection Rolls...



Several years ago I came across a recipe for Resurrection Rolls. At the time the kids were still pretty little and I was always looking for creative ways to illustrate Easter to them. This recipe caught my eye due to the simplicity of making them and the power of what it illustrates. The rolls go in the oven filled with a marshmallow and come out empty inside. We made the rolls that year and they have become an Easter tradition in our home ever since. I thought I would share these with you as we get ready to celebrate our Lord's Resurrection.

The first step is to buy a pack of frozen dinner rolls, you could make your own rolls, but we're talking tradition and I've always bought Mrs. Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls!

Be sure and spray the pan first, then defrost the rolls for about an hour...


Next flatten the dinner roll out...





Then add a large marshmallow to your dough....



Wrap the dough around the marshmallow, being sure to pinch the dough together...



Cover with plastic wrap and let rise 2-3 hours...



 Brush the rolls with melted butter...




Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar....put in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.



Ready to come out....they are smelling really good about now!



Enjoy and be sure the kids notice that where the marshmallow was, is now empty....just like the tomb.

 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said...
