Family Traditions in keeping Jesus in Easter!

 Our Family Tradition to Celebrate the True Meaning of Easter

We have many years done this tradition Easter morning with my boys to give the day a great start and to hold Christ at the center of our celebration. Although our family always makes sure we have a great meal planned and get to gather in the living room around Easter baskets and rush to Easter Sunday service at our church. It is a blessing to make this recipe and know that your putting a great start to your day.

So how we create an awesome way to remember the Resurrection of Christ on our Easter Morning we create Resurrection Rolls. Its is a great way to show kids (my boys) the story of the Lords Resurrection while using food to represent the each part of what was that Christ has done for us and awesome to show and testify to your children to give a teaching tool to them. 

Recipe: Resurrection Rolls
what you will need
2 Cans of Crescent Rolls (10oz each)- Pillsbury is the best
8 Large Marshmallows
1/4 Cup of Melted Butter
2 Tbsp of Cinnamon
2 Tbsp of Sugar

1ST: preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease baking sheet or muffin tin (I have done them both ways- I prefer muffin tins)
2ND: separate out the Crescent rolls into each triangle for both cans.

Separating the Crescent dough out into triangles.
3RD: Take in a small bowl put the melted butter and stir in the sugar and cinnamon

4TH: Take 2 crescent rolls overlaying them in opposite directions of each other on a plate. Next roll the marshmallow into the butter/sugar mixture, making sure you coat all sides. Then place the marshmallow into the center of the crescent roll dough pulling all sides together and pinching them closed.

adding marshmallow to place in its tomb
5TH: Place in lightly greased baking pan or into lightly greased (Baking Pam works wonders for this) muffin pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes. I usually check them when they seem puffed and golden they are done.

The reasons behind doing this recipe is what we can teach our children in the process of making this delicious tasty sweet Easter Morning.

As we do, we talk about the Resurrection of our Savior Christ Jesus.
1st-taking sinless Jesus (marshmallow)
2nd-anointing Him in oils (butter) and incense (cinnamon)
Early Easter Morning, Both of us have bed head.. but best way to learn is hands on!
3rd- wrapping Him in the shroud (crescent roll)
4th-then placing Him in the tomb (oven).
Once they are baked the best surprise is in-store for kids is that when you open the Jesus has risen and the tombs are empty.

    We always make at least two batches and they go fast. It's so fun to see everyone open their "empty tombs" at the table. We have been doing this for years now with my oldest son who will be 10 this year and completely understands, but so much fun to see my youngest he's 4 now almost 5 he's starting to grasp the concept and understand why we continue to do this tradition. I look forward to this Easter morning once again.

   If you have not heard of this recipe before I hope you enjoy trying it with your family its a great learning tool and a delicious treat for the whole family!
