EASTER STORY COOKIES
To be made the evening before Easter.
1 c. whole pecans
1 tsp. vinegar
3 egg whites
1 c. sugar
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F 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 the Roman soldiers beat him. Read
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
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 1-c. 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 ISA.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. Read Matt. 27:65-66.
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.
