Our Easter Tradition

I just love Easter!  I have quite a large collection of bunnies, decorative eggs, etc… so I enjoy decorating my home for this special holiday.  And I can’t begin to count the Egg Hunts we’ve attended and the amount of eggs we’ve dyed. Lots of great memories. I wouldn’t trade them for anything!
But, Easter is so much more than eggs and bunnies to me and my family. It is the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The tomb is empty!!

My sweet son will be 15 years old this Fall and I blinked! Seems like he was just born! He reminds me every other day that he can get his driver’s permit after his next birthday. {insert freak out face here}

One of our favorite Easter traditions, now that my children are older and don’t enjoy Egg Hunts, are Resurrection Rolls! They tell the Resurrection story AND they are delicious!!! You might want to add these to your family’s tradition next year.

3 rolls of Crescent Rolls
Large Marshmallows
Roll out Crescent Rolls and divide into 12 even squares. Insert each square into 12-cup muffin tin, leaving flaps open. This represents the tomb.
Then, put 1/2 pat of butter into each filled muffin cup. This represents the tomb being prepared for Jesus’ body.
Fill each cup with 1 large marshmallow to represent the body of Jesus.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of the marshmallow just as they prepared Jesus body according to their tradition.
Close up dough flaps over the marshmallow to signify closing up the tomb. Then bake at 320 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
When rolls are done, you will notice that they are hollow. The marshmallow disappeared!  Serve these yummy rolls to your family and talk about how Jesus rose from the dead just like that marshmallow! Your kids will love it!
Easter blessings to you!
