Ingredients

    1 cup whole pecans
    3 egg whites
    1tsp vinegar
    pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees
Place pecans in zipper baggie and let children beat them with a wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested, the Roman Soldiers beat him. Read John 19:1-3
Let children smell the vinegar. Put 1tsp vinegar into mixing bowl. Explain that when Christ was on the cross he was thirsty and was given vinegar to drink. Read John 19:28-30
Add egg whites to the vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to make it so we could live again and repent. 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 sins. Read Luke 23:27
So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 cup of sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because he loves us. Read Psalms 34:8 and John 3:16.
Beat with mixer on high speed for 11-15 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 tsp. onto waxed paper-covered cookie sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid. Read Matthew 27:65-66
Put 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. Read Matthew 27:65-66 again.
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&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 Resurrection Day, Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Read Matthew 28:1-9
HE HAS RISEN!!
