Lightbulb Easter Story Cookies

EASTER STORY COOKIES
Great way to tell kids or grandkids the Easter Story!!!!
Make the night before Easter.

You need: 1 c. whole pecans 1 tsp. vinegar
3 egg whites pinch salt
1 c. sugar zipper baggie
wooden spoon tape
Bible

Preheat oven to 300.
Place pecans in zipper baggie and let children beat them with the wooden
spoon to break into
small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested he was beaten by the
Roman soldiers. Read
John 19:1-3.

Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. vinegar into mixing bowl.
Explain that when Jesus
was thirsty on the cross 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.
Read John 10:10-11.

Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and
brush the rest into the bowl.
Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus' followers,
and the bitterness of our own
sin. Read Luke 23:27.

So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 c. sugar. Explain
that the sweetest part of
the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know
and belong to Him. Read
Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16.

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

Fold in broken nuts Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper covered cookie
sheet. Explain that
each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid. Read
Matthew 27:57-60.
Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF.

Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain that
Jesus' tomb was sealed.
Read Matthew 27:65-66.

GO TO BED! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the
oven overnight. Jesus'
followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20 and
22.

On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the
cracked surface and
take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Easter Jesus'
followers were amazed to find the
tomb open and empty. Read Matthew 28:1-9.

HE HAS RISEN!

Pat

I wish I would have seen this recipe in time for Easter. That's such a very sweet thing to explain to small children. Did you turn off the oven at any time during the night or was it on until you opened the oven Easter morning? I'm starting to think I don't have to wait for Easter again. I'm going to my DD's this weekend and could do it then. Thanks! ;-)
