Resurrection-Themed Pastries? I Might Try This One

This isn’t a foodie blog, but this caught my eye.

 

So, I’m not one for religiously-themed pastries – outside of the Maundy Thursday remembrance meals with authentic, unleavened bread – but this looks delicious.

They are called “Resurrection Rolls.”  Essentially, you take a marshmallow, dip it in butter, roll it in cinnamon and sugar and wrap it in crescent roll dough.  After baking, the marshmallow disappears and you have a mostly empty roll, dripping with the cinnamon and sugary glaze.

Here is the link to the Facebook page I found this on.

Here is the recipe:

Resurrection Rolls

Ingredients:
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 large marshmallows
Melted butter
Cinnamon
Sugar

Instructions:
Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb.
Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ.
Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial.
Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow.
Make sure all seams are pinched together well. (Otherwise the marshmallow will “ooze” out of the seams)
Bake according to package directions.
Cool.

Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!!
Celebrate God’s love!

Enjoy!
