Easter Story Cookies
To be made the evening before Easter

  You need:

 - 1 cup whole pecans
 - 1 tsp. vinegar
 - 3 egg whites
 - pinch salt
 - 1 cup sugar
 - zipper baggie
 - wooden spoon
 - wax paper
 - tape
 - Bible

Preheat oven to 300 degrees (this is important-don’t wait till  you’re half done with the recipe!)

Place pecans in zipper baggie and let children beat them with the wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Explain  that after Jesus was arrested, He was beaten by the Roman  soldiers. Read John 19:1-3.

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 John 19:28-30.

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 cup 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
