Introduction

Wonderful recipe to make with your kids for Easter Wonderful recipe to make with your kids for Easter
Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    1c. whole pecans
    1 tsp. vinegar
    3 egg whites
    pinch salt
    1c. sugar
    zipper baggy
    wooden spoon
    tape
    Bible

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 (this is important don't wait till you're
half
done with the recipe)

Place pecans in zipper baggy and let children beat them with the
wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was
arrested He was beaten by the Roman soldiers. Read John 19:1-3.

Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. vinegar into mixing
bowl. Explain that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given
vinegar to drink. Read John 19:28-30.

Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that
Jesus
gave His life to give us life. Read John 10:10-11.

Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it
and
brush the rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty
tears shed by Jesus' followers, and the bitterness of our own sin.
Read Luke 23:27.

So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1c. sugar.
Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because
He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him.
Read Ps. 34:8 and John 3:16.

Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff
peaks are formed. Explain that the color white represents the purity
in
God's eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus.
Read Isaiah.1:18 and John 3:1-3.

Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper covered
cookie
sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus'
body was laid. Read Matt. 27:57-60.

Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven
OFF.

Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain
that
Jesus' tomb was sealed.

GO TO BED! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in
the oven overnight. Jesus' followers were in despair when the tomb
was
sealed. Read John 16:20 and 22.

On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie.
Notice
the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the
first Easter Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open
and empty. Read Matt. 28:1-9
