Resurrection Cookies

Crescent Dinner Rolls (canned, enough for each child to have 1)
Large Marshmellows (1 per child)
soft butter or margarine

Preheat your oven (a toaster oven will work as well) to temp on can of rolls.
Give each child a piece of foil and write their name on it with a sharpie.
Unroll the crescent rolls and have the children lay them on their piece of foil. (These will represent the grave cloths that were wrapped around Jesus.)
Have the children spread margarine on the crescent roll (to represent the oils used to annoint the body for burial).
Next they will place the marshmellows in the center to represent Jesus' body.
Sprinkle with cinnamon (again burial spices), and bring the crescent up to surround the marshmellow so it is completely hidden.
Place on a baking sheet in the oven (which is representative of the tomb) and bake until crescent rolls are done. (this is a good place to discuss the 3 days he was in the grave).
When done the marshmellow has seemed to disappear and the "cloths" and "tomb" are empty.

They are very yummy. I first heard this on the radio and have done it at church a couple of times and they are a hit...make sure you send home a copy of the recipe with each child.
