When my friend, Ariel, shared this recipe with me yesterday, I had to try it. It sounded delicious, easy, and clever. Making the pastries with children – if you have human children, not just hounds – is a great way to teach them the story of the Resurrection.
Here’s what you need…
Butter (about a half a stick)
1. Preheat oven per crescent roll package and roll out the dough on a cookie sheet. I sprayed with some Pam, because the sugar and marshmallows will be sticky.
2. Melt about 1/2 stick of butter and add some cinnamon and sugar. Wisk together. You don’t have to be exact.
3. Dip the marshmallows in the butter mixture. Cover them completely.
4. Place the marshmallows in the center of the dough.
5. Roll the dough into crescents, but make sure to seal off all of seems, or the marshmallows will make a mess!
6. Brush the remainder of the butter mixture on top of the rolls and bake according to the crescent roll package.
7. Mix powdered sugar, a tiny bit of milk, and vanilla (if you want) to make icing. I think mine was a little too thin, but add milk or sugar for desired thickness. Drizzle a little over the top and enjoy!
The tomb is empty! Or, well, the marshmallow disappeared into the roll!
“He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.” - (Matthew 28:6 ESV)
I’m about to have a spell over these pastries!
