Resurrection Cookies

I haven't done these in a couple of years so I thought it was time to dust off the recipe! I'm posting before we actually do them since Resurrection Sunday is this coming Sunday. These are really fun and I like this recipe most because of the scripture references that go along with it. Hope you enjoy!!!


Resurrection Cookies

1. Gather a baggie, 1 wooden spoon, mixing bowl, mixer and your Bible.

2. Preheat oven to 300°. Don't wait for this step; you really DO need to preheat the oven!!

3. Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 3 egg whites
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 cup sugar

Beat pecans in baggie with spoon.

Jesus was beaten by Roman soldiers.

John 19:1-3

To mixing bowl add vinegar,

Soldiers gave Jesus vinegar while He was on the cross.

John 19:28-30

egg whites,

Eggs represent life. Jesus gave His life so we could have life.

John 10:10-11

pinch of salt,

Jesus shed salty tears for us.

Luke 23:27

and sugar.

Jesus died because He loved us.

John 3:16

Beat on high speed with mixer for 15 minutes or until stiff peaks form.

White represents our sins being cleansed.

John 3:1-3

Fold in nuts.

Matthew 27:57-60

Drop 12 teaspoon sizes onto cookie sheet and place in oven. Turn off oven and No peeking!!

Jesus is placed in his tomb.

The next morning, open the oven and taste your cookies!! Why the cookies are hollow!!!!

Jesus tomb is empty.

**This post has been edited to add the instructions to Turn OFF the oven once you place your cookie sheet, with cookies in the oven. These DO NOT bake over night in an oven that is on. PLEASE PLEASE turn your oven off, whew!!!!

Whew thanks for catching that typo. You turn the oven off once you put the cookies in the oven. I edited the original post to reflect that step. Thanks again, wow I can't believe I missed that step, lol.
