Homemade Resurrection Roll

Homemade Resurrection Roll Recipe: Serves 24

3/4 cup warm water
1 large egg
3 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons dry milk
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
24 marshmallows

Combine first 8 ingredients. Let rise until double. Divide into 24 balls and flatten.

Mix sugar and cinnamon together.

Dip rolls in melted margarine, then into sugar mixture. Wrap roll around a marshmallow, covering completely. Dip once more into butter, and again into sugar. Place rolls in a large greased pan and allow to rise till double (about 35 minutes).

Bake at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until done. Rolls should be completely empty when cooled…like the empty tomb.

-give each child one piece of roll dough—that represents the tomb

-give each child a marshmallow—that represents Jesus’ body

-roll each marshmallow in butter and then in sugar mix–represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial.

-Rap the tomb around the body and seal it tightly—they rolled a stone over the tomb to secure it.

-Roll the tomb in butter, then in sugar mix, and let them rise.  Don’t wait for three days but to kids it could seem like that.  Jesus’ followers had to wait too.

-Bake at 375 for 15 min. when finished notice that the tomb is now empty.  Jesus is alive
