Last year we started the tradition of making Resurrection Cookies. These were fun for the kids and it was nice to help explain the true meaning of Easter to them. The cool thing is that I had all the ingredients in my stockpile. We read a children’s story on the first Easter, and then while they made these, I read some scriptures.
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
- 3 egg whites
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 cup sugar
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
- Place pecans in a resealable plastic bag. Using a rolling pin or heavy pot, crush the pecans into small bits. Read John 19:1-3
- Put 1 teaspoon vinegar into a medium bowl. Read John 19:28-30
- Add egg whites to the vinegar. Read John 10:10-11
- Sprinkle salt into the egg whites. Read Luke 23:27
- So far, the mixture isn’t very appetizing. Add sugar. Read Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16. Beat with mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Read Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3.
- Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Read Matthew 27:57-60.
- Place cookies in the oven close the door and turn the oven off. Read Matthew 27:65-66.
- Go to bed. Read John 16:20 and 22.
- In the morning open the oven and take out the cookies. Read Matthew 28:1-9.
You preheat the oven to 300, but turn it OFF when you put the cookies in. You then seal the oven and let them sit overnight. In the morning, we took them out. but they stuck to the pan. They are supposed to be hollow in the middle, signifying the empty tomb. I think we made them too big? Hubby commented that they tasted like butter pecan ice cream.
