    Debber's Note:

    Make these on Easter Eve, right before bedtime for the kiddies. Preheat the oven to 300--this is VERY important! Read the corresponding Bible passage while adding the necessary ingredients.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees--you MUST do it now. Also, gather a cooking mallet, kitchen mixer, masking tape and Bible.
    2. 2
      Read John 19:1-3 ~ Jesus was beaten for our sins; beat the nuts with a cooking mallet; set aside.
    3. 3
      Read John 19:28-30 - Jesus drank something like vinegar (gall), sniff the fragrance, dip finger in and taste, too; place the vinegar in a mixing bowl.
    4. 4
      Read John 10:10-11 - Egg whites symbolize Jesus' holy, innocent life; add whites to the bowl with the vinegar.
    5. 5
      Read Luke 23:27 - the bitter tears of the women; taste a few grains, remember your own sins; add the salt to the bowl.
    6. 6
      Read Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16 - Sweet salvation! Taste and see; add to the bowl.
    7. 7
      Crank up the mixer and let it go while you read from Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3; let the mixer go for about 12-15 MINUTES; this needs to be VERY stiff!
    8. 8
      Read Matthew 27:57-60 - Fold the nuts into the egg-sugar mixture; this symbolizes the rocks in the garden.
    9. 9
      Using a scoop or knife & spoon, drop by spoon into mounds (to resemble a rocky tomb); put into the oven and turn it OFF!
    10. 10
      Read Matthew 27:65-66 - The tomb is sealed; use two pieces of tape (5-6 inches long) to "seal" the door edges (symbolically).
    11. 11
      Read John 16:20 & 22 - Consider these passages, then go to bed!
    12. 12
      NEXT MORNING: Read Matthew 28:1-9 - Jesus is risen! Behold--the empty tomb! Unseal the oven door, take out the cookies, break or bite one in half -- it should be hollow inside---empty---just like the Tomb!
    13. 13
      He is risen! He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!

      I tagged these in Please Review. I had seen this B4 and I love the idea of teaching the Easter story and making cookies at the same time. The only problem I had was that I made them too small (it didn't state the size to drop and I didn't look at the serving size until the next day) and I think that made them not hollow. They were still a little sticky too. It might have been the weather too. We scraped some off to try and the 4 yo kept wanting more! This might be fun for Easter to add food coloring too (although that might kill the "purity" part of the lesson! :))

      I made these and they turned out just being meringue cookies. I didn't tell the story because I thought it was kind of creepy.

      I had eaten these cookies many times but had never seen it done along with the scripture. I loved the opportunity to have the kids learning something like this with a demonstration to involve their senses. I did have a problem with them being a little sticky and not hollow the next morning, but probably due to the rain. I put them back in the oven and turned it on about 200 degrees for half an hour or so and they did get to the right texture.
