Making these buns for Easter morning breakfast has been a tradition in our home since ours boys were small.
Although our Easter mornings have always been rushed, we would still enjoy these great tasting buns that bring back some wonderful memories.
It's a great way to teach the Easter story to children!
Each child takes a Grand (or other large ) canned biscuit.
1. They flatten the biscuit out until it's about 5 inches across.
2.They spread melted butter, sugar and cinnamon on it.
*We explain that the spices represent the spices used to anoint Jesus' body before His burial.*
3.Then each child gets one large marshmallow.
*The marshmallow represents Jesus.
It is white because it stands for His purity and His sinless life.
4. They place the marshmallow in the center of the biscuit, then fold the sides around it forming a "tomb".
(You may need to help the younger children pinch the sides of their tombs closed and then place them crease side down on a baking sheet so they will not open while cooking).
5. Put more butter, cinnamon and sugar on the outside.
* We talk about the sweet taste of the spices and how Jesus gave us the sweetest gift we will ever receive.*
6.At this point you can go ahead and bake the buns. (according to pkg. directions.)
Remove when done and cool.
When the children bite into their buns they will be surprised to find the center empty! The marshmallow has melted.
As each child discovers the empty tomb, we repeat : "He is not here for He is risen!"
It can become a wonderful Easter morning tradition in your home, that only takes minutes to prepare but the memories will last a lifetime.
