RECIPE TITLE "Easter
Cookies with Stories from the Bible" Author: Lucille,
- 1 c. whole
- 1 tsp. vinegar
- 3 egg whites pinch salt
- 1 c. sugar zipper baggy wooden
- the Bible
I took this recipe
from a book a long time ago, I hope you'll enjoy like me.
- Preheat oven to 300
deg F. Place pecans in a zipper bag and let children beat them with a
wooden spoon to break them into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus
was arrested he was beaten by the Roman soldiers.
- Let the children
smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. vinegar into mixing bowl. Explain that when
Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given vinegar to drink.
- Add egg whites to
vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give
- Sprinkle a little
salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and brush the rest into
the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus'
followers, and the bitterness of our own sin.
- So far the ingredients
are not very appetizing!!! Add 1 c. 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.
- Beat with a 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.
- Fold in broken nuts.
Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper covered cookie sheet. Explain that each
mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid.
- 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.
- Explain that they
may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus' followers
were in despair when the tomb was sealed.
- On Easter morning,
open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and
take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Easter Jesus' followers
were amazed to find the tomb open and empty.
