-by Mary May Larmoyeux- Not too long ago some of my grandkids and I baked some Resurrection Rolls. They are not only easy to make, but also delicious!
As the kids and I made the Easter treats, the hollow rolls opened up rich conversation. We were able to talk about why Jesus’ tomb was empty. The simple answer? He arose! (John 20:1-18)
Hope that you enjoy this recipe!
(The baked rolls will be hollow, to represent Jesus’ empty tomb.)
1 can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (8 rolls)
8 large marshmallows
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Mix cinnamon and sugar together.
- Separate crescent rolls into individual triangles.
- Insert a fork into a marshmallow and dip the marshmallow into melted butter; then roll in sugar mixture.
- Place one coated marshmallow into the center of a dough triangle. Carefully wrap the dough around the marshmallow. Be sure and pinch the seams together to seal in marshmallow as it melts. (A few of the seams of my grandkids’ rolls were not pinched tightly and the marshmallow melted onto the cookie sheet instead of being absorbed into the roll. So … as one who knows … double-check that the seams are pinched tightly.)
- Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
