RESURRECTION COOKIES

Ingredients:

1 cup whole pecans
1 teaspoon vinegar
3 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
zipper baggie
wooden spoon
tape
Bible

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Place pecans in zipper baggie and let children beat them with the wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Each action has a biblical significance relating to the Easter story. Beating the pecans refers to what happened after Jesus was arrested. He was beaten by the Roman soldiers. Read John 19:1-3.

Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 teaspoon. vinegar into mixing bowl. Refer to Jesus being thirsty on the cross, and he was given vinegar to drink. Read John 19:28-30.
Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life everlasting. Read John 10:10-11.

Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand to taste. Place the rest of the salt into the bowl. The salt represents the salty tears shed by Jesus' followers, along with the bitterness of our own sin. Read Luke 23:27.

Up until now, the ingredients are not appealing at all.

Add 1 cup sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know Him. Read Ps. 34:8 and John 3:16.

Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Explain The significance of the color white. It represents the purity in God's eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read Isa.1:18 and John 3:1-3.

Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoon onto wax paper covered cookie sheet. Each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid. Read Matt. 27:57-60.

Place the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven off completely. Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door (be sure the oven door is not hot). Explain how Jesus' tomb was sealed. Read Matt. 27:65-66.

Now comes the hard part...leaving them overnight. Tell children that while they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus' followers were anguished when his tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20 and 22.

On Easter morning, open the oven and serve each child a cookie. Point out the cracked surface and have them take a bite.

The cookies are now hollow...empty just like the tomb on Resurrection Day. Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Jesus had risen. Read Matt. 28:1-9.
