A Religious Story-Teaching Cooking Experience Easter Cookies or Resurrection Cookies 
               
   Make them on Saturday night, right before Easter Sunday!

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Whole Pecans
1 Teaspoon Vinegar
3 Egg Whites
1 Cup of Sugar
Pinch of Salt
A Zipper Baggie  (I like Hefty)
Wooden Spoon
Some Tape
Your bible!


Preheat oven to 300F 

 

Put the pecans in  the zipper baggie and let children beat them with the wooden spoon to break into small pieces. 
Then share with them that after Jesus was arrested He was beaten by the Roman soldiers.  Or, read from the bible, John 19:1-3.

Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. vinegar into mixing bowl. 
Then share with them that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given vinegar to drink.  Or read from the bible, John 19:28-30.

Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. 
Then share with them that Jesus gave His life to give us life. Or read from the bible,  John 10:10-11.

Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and brush the rest into the bowl. 
Then share with them that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus' followers, and the bitterness of our own sin. 
Or, read from the bible,  Luke 23:27.


So far the ingredients don't even seem good enough to lick the spoon!  But....

Then, add 1 cup of  sugar. 
Then tell them that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know this and how to belong to Him. And from the bible read Psalm. 34:8 and John 3:16.

Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. 
 Then share with them that the color white represents the purity in God's eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read from the bible,  Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3.

Fold in the broken pecans  nuts. Drop by teaspoons on a cookie sheet that is covered with wax paper.. 
Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid.  Or read from the bible, Matthew 27:57-60.

After putting  the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and  then turn the oven OFF.

Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. 
Share with them that this represents how   Jesus' tomb was sealed.  Or read from the bible,  Mathew 27:65-66.

GO TO BED! 
Tell the children that leaving the cookies in the oven makes them feel just as sad as when   Jesus' followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed too.   And, then read from the bible, John 16:20 and 22.

On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie!

You will also notice  the cracked surface. And, after taking a bite, you'll see that  the cookies are hollow!
 On the first Easter Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty! Read to them Mathew 28:1-9
