I found this recipe for Easter Resurrection Rolls and had to try it with the kids. My cousin was visiting with her little girl so it was perfect timing to try such a kid-friendly recipe.
- 2 cans of refrigerator crescent rolls (so, 16 rolls)
- 16 marshmallows
- 14 cup butter, melted
- cinnamon and sugar mixture (I didn’t measure to make this. I just poured some sugar in a bowl then added cinnamon until it looked to be the right colour, a light brown.)
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Separate the crescent rolls into 16 triangles.
- Roll a marshmallow in the melted butter, then in the sugar mixture. Place on the center of a dough triangle and wrap it up. Press to seal all the seams. Dip the roll into the butter again, and then into the sugar again. Place on a pan with edges. Repeat with for the rest of the rolls.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
Each step symbolizes part of the Easter story:
The marshmallow represents the body of Jesus.
The butter represents the embalming oils.
The sugar and cinnamon are for the spices used to anoint the body.
Wrapping the dough around the marshmallow represents the body being wrapped with cloths.
The empty roll is the empty tomb!
