Resurrection Buns

Making these buns for RESURRECTION  morning breakfast has been a tradition in our home since ours boys were small.

Although our  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 Resurrection story to children!

Resurrection Buns

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. (or leave plain)

* 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.

  1. I think we will try the ressurection buns!

  2. Heatherlyn- I hope they will become an Easter tradition in your home as well.

  3. I was just thinking about these. I've never tried them, but I've heard of them. We sometimes make Easter Story cookies, which are meringues. You read the Easter story of Jesus as you make the cookies with the kids. The steps of the cookie making go along with the story.

  4. I am working now on my easter plans and I just posted about them. A friend/commenter linked to this post, I am so eager to try these as well as your hot crossed buns. You have so many great Easter recipes here... I am bookmarking you for sure!!

  5. Thank you. I hope you like them.
