Resurrection Rolls

Hello! Crazy week again. I've been busy trying to get ready for Easter. Sweet Girl's dress is done except for hemming. I am pleased with how it turned out and will share pictures after Easter. Now I've just got to figure out what I am going to wear. Growing up I always had a new dress for Easter and I still like to do that. It may be a thrifted dress, but it will still be new to me.

I meant to get this recipe posted earlier in the week. You know how that goes. These are an Easter morning tradition at our house. They are yummy and serve as a good teaching tool for the kiddos.

Resurrection Rolls

Place 20 frozen rolls in a greased pan and let them thaw.

When thawed, press rolls flat and place a marshmallow in the center. (Please ignore the nasty countertops. These were taken in the rental house last year.)

Pull roll up over the marshmallow and pinch edges closed.
Cover and let rise for at least 30-45 minutes. Some of the rolls may come undone. Just pinch them back together.
Brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 15 minutes at 350° .
These are best when served warm.
Do you know why they are called Resurrection Rolls? Because they look like the empty tomb!

Resurrection Rolls
20 Frozen Rhodes Rolls
20 large marshmallows
1/4 cup melted butter
6 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon

Place rolls in a greased 9x13 pan; let thaw. Press rolls flat. Place marshmallow in center; pinch edges of roll together to enclose marshmallow. Let rise 30-45 minutes. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until light brown. Serve warm. (Warning: the marshmallow turns to liquid and is gooey. Don't dress your kids in their Easter clothes before eating!)

{When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so they could embalm him. Very early on Sunday morning, as the sun rose, they went to the tomb. They worried out loud to each other, "Who will roll back the stone from the tomb for us?"

Then they looked up, saw that it had been rolled back—it was a huge stone—and walked right in. They saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed all in white. They were completely taken aback, astonished.

He said, "Don't be afraid. I know you're looking for Jesus the Nazarene, the One they nailed on the cross. He's been raised up; he's here no longer. You can see for yourselves that the place is empty. Now—on your way. Tell his disciples and Peter that he is going on ahead of you to Galilee. You'll see him there, exactly as he said." Mark 16:1-7}

{Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; John 11:25}
