Resurrection Cookies - Teach Your Children About The Resurrection of Jesus
Here is a great way to reinforce the Resurrection of Jesus to your little children. It's important to follow the recipe carefully and read all of the Scriptures given. The Resurrection should not be taught just at Easter but rather it should be emphasized every day of the year-- for Jesus is alive!
For this recipe you will need:
1 c. whole pecans 1 tsp. vinegar 3 egg whites pinch salt 1 c. sugar zipper baggie wooden spoon tape The Holy Bible
Preheat Oven to 300 F. (this is important - don't wait till you are half way done with the recipe!) 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 that and He wants us to love Him as well.
Read Psalms 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.

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.

THE LORD JESUS HAS RISEN!!! HE IS ALIVE!!
Have a blessed day!
John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Teaching your children about the Lord Jesus Christ is so important. Do not wait for someone else to teach them what the Bible says. It is your responsibility to raise your children with the proper knowledge of God's Holy Word and who the Lord Jesus is.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
2Tim 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
