    MapleLeafLili Hill's Note:

    These buns form a 'hollow' in the middle after baking. This hollow represents the empty tomb when Christ arose on Easter. They taste very much like cinnamon buns. YUMMY!

    1. 1
      Mix your cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Take a small ball of raw bun dough (these are easily made if you have leftover bread dough as well), and wrap it around a marshmallow, sealing well.
    3. 3
      Dip the ball into melted butter.
    4. 4
      Dip the buttered ball into the cinnamon/sugar mix.
    5. 5
      Place the ball onto a greased cookie pan, (use a pan with a lip, because the marshmallow will melt out to make a nice gooey sauce, and you wouldn't want it all over the bottom of your oven!) Leave enough space between balls to allow them to rise to double their size.
    6. 6
      Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for about 35 mins or until doubled in size.
    7. 7
      Pre-heat oven to 375.
    8. 8
      Bake the Resurrection Buns in the oven for 18-20 mins or until lightly browned.

      This is the same recipe that I use and it is very easy to make, besides tasting great. I used them for my Sunday school class opening lesson about the empty tomb. The cinnamon sugar does get a bit messy for the kids so make sure you have wipes handy for them to clean up with.

      This recipe is a definite keeper! My mother & I made it for Easter, using home made sweet roll dough, and they turned out wonderful! Thanks for this great recipe!

      We always called these Balloon Buns... but I like this name better (and the metaphor). We always made it with sweet dough that took too much time to make. I never thought of using premade dough. Thanks for the idea. Great fun for kids... and adults too!
