This is more than a recipe because it includes a Bible study. So grab those Bibles and go to the kitchen! This is such a fun way to celebrate The Resurrection as a family and focus on the scripture reference at the same time.
1 cup whole, shelled pecans or other nuts
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
Wooden spoon, rolling pin
You’re done! Explain that you cannot eat the cookies today, but that you have to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. That might not make anyone too happy. Explain that Jesus’ followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20 and 22
The next day, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the third day, Jesus followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Read Matthew 28:1-9
Enjoy the cookies and relate to life’s daily blessings through God’s love and grace – noted especially on Easter, the holiest of days.
