I love this recipe because it illustrates the story of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. My kids thoroughly enjoyed participating in making these cookies. The reason I only gave this recipe four stars is because our cookies were still sticky/moist in the morning. I followed the recipe exactly. Perhaps I'll have to try what the another user suggested and bake them at 200 degrees instead.
Great story and kids loved helping with these. Ours were a bit moist inside the next morning. Suprisingly enough, my kids didn't care to eat these, but I wouldn't rate it down because of that. I also wish it was stated how big the cookies should be. Our problem might have been, we made the cookies too big and that was why they were a bit moist.
I have passed this keeper on to many with small children! What an amazing way to tell the story. If you haven't tried this with your kids...this is a must! I can't say I think they "taste" good, but the time and effort is priceless to create this memory maker. It's one thing to hear the story, aanother to show the story. God Bless All of you!!
Thanks so much! I used to make this when my children were younger, and lost the recipe. It's a great lesson for Sunday School!
I haven't made these yet but plan on making these cookies for work and of course including the story. Thank you so much for posting this.
Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe story. We are making these tomorrow night on Holy Saturday.
I gave this recipe a high rating but I have not made them....I just received an email on this recipe and I immediately came to zaar to see if it was posted...I think that this is something great that can be shared with family (kids) to teach them what Easter is really about. I passed this recipe to my mom, who is a Sunday school teacher, hope she makes them for her class!! I too, will be making these this week-end!! GOD BLESS YOU!!
I made these today for my students in Sunday School to help involve them in the telling of the Easter Story. (I used bible verses as well to have them read along) When making the recipe, I had trouble in that the batter never got fluffy, no matter how long I let the mixer run. I looked up a different version of this recipe and the 2nd batch I made (at home), I beat the eggs, vinegar and salt on high to soft peaks, and then turned down the mixer on low and gradually added in the cup of sugar. Worked perfect! I also wanted to speed up the baking process so I could use my oven later and baked them at 200 F degrees for one hour. It was the pefect time. I hope many other moms and teachers use this to tell the Easter Story this year and for many years to come! Pam
Made these at Easter. Used granola in place of pecans as we were out of pecans. Thanks for sharing!
