      RECIPE TITLE "Easter Cookies with Stories from the Bible" Author: Lucille, New England

    yields4/5 people time--difficultymoderate

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    • 1 c. whole pecans
    • 1 tsp. vinegar
    • 3 egg whites pinch salt
    • 1 c. sugar zipper baggy wooden spoon tape;
    • the Bible

    I took this recipe from a book a long time ago, I hope you'll enjoy like me.

      RECIPE METHOD

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life.
    4. 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.
    5. 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.
    6. 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.
    7. 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.
    8. 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.
    9. Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus' followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed.
    10. 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.
