Yes. That preview photo is a marshmallow being dipped in melted butter. It’s the beginning of another way we reinforce the meaning of Easter. With Resurrection Rolls. They require just a few simple ingredients, and kids can easily assemble them. You’ll need marshmallows, a tube of biscuit dough, melted butter and some cinnamon/sugar.
The Golden Egg is legendary at my parent’s house on Easter. My dad has triumphed over the common child for the past 30 years. The city of Atlantis isn’t lost. My father simply hid it and nobody can find his hiding place. Really. He’s a genius. I hope to be just like him some day.
These light, gently spiced buns are one of my favorite Easter week traditions. I make them every Good Friday, always bringing them to my mom to enjoy with a cup of tea. This recipe from America’s Test Kitchen is a little time intensive, but not difficult and, it has never failed me. You get big, beautifully golden rolls that are a perfect breakfast or brunch treat. My little guy got in on the action last year and loved every minute.
It’s come to my attention that not everyone has traditions upon traditions to draw from during holidays. Since Easter is just a week away, I thought I’d spend the next few days sharing a few of our Easter traditions. Starting with Resurrection Eggs. Resurrection Eggs are a way for even the youngest children to learn the story of Easter. We’ve been using these puppies since my oldest was only three. Twelve eggs have a symbol inside that help remind kids (and adults too) of the events leading up to the crucifixion, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.
We tried something a little different last Easter. Instead of dyeing eggs, we fingerprinted them. It was a fun change of pace and the kids loved coming up with designs.
