This simple recipe paints such a vivid picture of the resurrection story. Resurrection rolls have quickly become a family Easter tradition.
Ever since Little Sanctuary posted the Resurrection rolls instructions, we look forward to this tradition. (Thank you, friend!)
Be prepared for some literal interpretations of the Easter story though. I still remember what our then, three-year-old, said.
We’d carefully dipped the marshmallow ‘Jesus’ in the embalming oil (butter) and spices (sugar and cinnamon). We’d carefully wrapped the burial linens (crescent roll).
All were ready to go in the oven.
“We’re gonna cook Jesus?” she exclaimed, all concerned.
A wonderful teaching opportunity 🙂 Because after they came out of the oven, she said, “Jesus melted!” But that shows how He is not there – He is risen indeed!

He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Matthew 28:6
