I wish I had thought about this idea before tonight, in order to share this for Easter baking. Well, You can always save it! This is made from my Lemon Drop Cookie recipe which I will add to this post. These were fun to make and my grandchildren will enjoy these even more than usual.
Yield: 60 cookies
This is a recipe and activity to do with children:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Place pecans in zipper baggie and leg children beat them with the wooden spoon to break them into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested the Roman soldiers beat Him. Read John 19:1-3
Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 teaspoon into mixing bowl. Explain that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross, He was given vinegar to drink. Read John 19:28-30
Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life. Read John 10:10-11.
Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and then brush the rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus' followers and the bitterness of our own sin. Read Luke 23:27.
So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 cup sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him. Read Psalms 34:8 and John 3:16.
Beat with mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Explain that the color white represents the purity in God's eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read Isa. 1:18 and John 3:1-3.
Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto a wax paper covered cookie sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid. Read Matthew 27:65-66.
Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF. Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain that Jesus' tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20 and 22.
On Resurrection morning, (Easter Sunday) open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Resurrection day, Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Read Matthew 28:1-9.
HE HAS RISEN!
Combine marshmallow creme, peanut butter and butter; mix until well blended. Add noodles and plain M&M's or chocolate chips. Mix well. Drop by 1/3 cupfuls onto greased cookie sheet; shape with greased fingers to form nests.
