Perhaps you've seen an Easter Story Cookie recipe or two floating around the internet? I'm not quite sure how I first heard of this recipe--it might have been from the program director at our church in WV. It's such a great idea, really--each ingredient represents a part of the Easter story, and there are scripture references to read along the way. The part that I absolutely love is that when you put the cookies in the oven, you seal it up, just like Jesus' tomb was sealed, and turn the oven off. Yes, you read that right: you turn the oven off! Oh, yeah, and the cookies turn out hollow, like an empty tomb.
So we tried it a couple of years ago, with mixed results--some of them worked, and some didn't. It was pretty disappointing. I'm wondering if it's because our oven cooks a little cool--maybe if we upped the temp a bit? Or maybe we needed to use a metal bowl?
A few years later, we tried Resurrection Rolls, which worked beautifully and were oh-so-delicious.
I think this year we're going to try Easter Story Cookies again--if you'd like to try them, too, check out Saving Addiction's instructions, or Catholic Icing has beautiful printable instructions that you can access through her Facebook page.
