Resurrection Story Cookies Steps & Recipe
Author: 
Recipe type: Cookies
Cuisine: America
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole pecans
  • One teaspoon vinegar
  • Three egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Zip lock bag
  • Wooden spoon
  • Tape
  • Bible
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Place pecans in the zip lock bag and let the children beat them with a wooden spoon to break them into little pieces. Explain: That after Jesus was arrested, He was beaten by the Roman soldier. Read JOHN 19: 1-3
  3. Let each child taste the vinegar. Put one teaspoon in a mixing bowl. Explain: That when Jesus was thirsty on the cross, He was given vinegar to drink. Read JOHN 19: 28-30
  4. Add egg whites to the vinegar. Explain: That eggs represent life and that Jesus gave His life to give us life. Read JOHN 10:10-11
  5. Sprinkle a small pinch of salt in each child’s hand. Let them taste it and brush the rest into the bowl. Explain: That this represents the tears shed by Jesus’ followers and the bitterness of our sin. Read LUKE 23:27
  6. Add 1 cup of 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 Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16
  7. Beat with a mixer on high-speed for 13 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks form. When you raise up the beaters, the egg whites will stick to the beaters without dropping. Explain: The color white represents the purity in God’s eyes of those whose sins have been cleaned by Jesus. Read Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3
  8. Gently fold the broken pecans into the egg whites. Drop by teaspoons onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. To make it easier, I used a one teaspoon size ice cream scoop. Explain: that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus’ body was laid. Read MATTHEW 27: 57-60
  9. Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the oven 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 MATTHEW 27:65-66
  10. Send the children to bed! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus’ followers were sad when the tomb was sealed. Read JOHN 16:20 and 22
  11. On Resurrection Morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Yes, a cookie before breakfast! Notice the cracks and take a bite. The cookies are empty! Explain: That on the first Resurrection morning, Jesus’ followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty! Jesus’ had risen!!! Read MATTHEW 28:1-9

    • Carrie,

      I love this cookies. They are not only good but they help teach kids about Jesus. When kids are little they get so excited to rush to the oven to see if the tomb was found empty.
      Many thanks for visiting and sharing!
      Blessings,
      Diane

  2. I love that you used a simple meringue cookie for this recipe and story. Absolutely perfect and I make my meringues with chocolate chips, but never thought of dong them for this story. Perfect Diane and thank you for sharing 🙂

    • Janine,

      Thanks for stopping by. I have made them with chocolate chips too and they are so good. I have been making these Resurrection cookies since my kids were very little. It is a good way to help teach the story of Jesus.

      I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
      Blessings,
      Diane Roark
