    Here’s another Easter Recipe the WCSG listening family might enjoy:
    Resurrection Cookies
    Preheat oven to 300 degrees
    Ingredients: 1 cup whole pecans; 3 egg whites; 1 cup sugar; 1 tsp. vinegar; 1 pinch of salt.
    You need: mixing bowl, wooden spoon, Bible, zipper baggie, waxed paper, cookie sheet, and tape.
    Place pecan 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 a child smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. 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 the 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 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 Psalm 34:8 and
    John 3:16
    Beat with mixer on high speed for 11-15 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 Isaiah 1:18
    and John 3:1-3
    Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper-covered cookie sheet. Explain that each
    mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus’ body was laid. Read Matthew 27:65-66
    Put 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 Matthew 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 Resurrection Morning open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and
    take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Resurrection Day, Jesus’ followers were amazed to find
    the tomb open and empty. Read Matthew 28:1-9
    HE HAS RISEN!! HALLELLUJAH!!
