Every year I try to make Easter a bit more special for my family. This year we added making Resurrection Rolls to our activities and made them together for dessert. It was a nice time to be together and talk about the symbolism of this treat. Like I said, they were very enjoyable to make and everyone in our family loved them. As I've mentioned before, I am not a huge fan of marshmallow and I did not try one but everyone said they could not taste the marshmallow at all. It truly disappeared!
Here is the symbolism:
marshmallow- body of Jesus
melted butter- oils of embalming
cinnamon and sugar mix- spices used to annoint the body
crescent roll- the wrapping of Jesus' body
cavity in bun- the empty tomb
ressurection rolls (I used a combination of this blog and this blog)
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
4 large marshmallows, cut in half
14 cup butter, melted
Separate rolls into 8 triangles. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each marshmallow into butter, roll in cinnamon and sugar and place on a triangle. Pinch dough around marshmallow, sealing all edges. Make sure to seal well or the marshmallow will escape.
Dip tops of dough into remaining cinnamon and sugar. Place with sugar side up in a paper liner in muffin cups.
Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes. Serve warm.
