Today on the 217 campus, the moms and kids did a baking craft, making Empty Tomb Biscuits. Like the Resurrection Cookies in the Fruitful Friday post last week, these are a fun way to talk with children about the Resurrection of our Savior. Even the three year old that Robyn babysits had a great time with it. On the drive home she was explaining to Robyn all about the biscuit and the story of Jesus, although her Christmas and Easter stories must have been running together in her mind, because she was thinking that it was baby Jesus in the tomb. :)
Thank you to Aryn for doing the craft, and for sharing this fun recipe with the rest of us:
Empty Tomb Biscuits
These biscuits form a hollow center while baking, representing the empty tomb where Christ arose on Easter.
I can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (like Grands)
¼ cup melted butter
1 bag large marshmallows
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl.
Flatten each biscuit until it’s about 5 inches across.
Spread melted butter, cinnamon and sugar on the biscuit.
Place the marshmallow on the center of the biscuit, and then fold the sides around it, forming a “tomb”.
Place biscuit crease side down on a greased baking sheet.
Spread more butter, cinnamon and sugar on top of the biscuit.
Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
