Easter Story Cookies or Resurrection Cookies



Well, since I told you all about the egg dyeing here, I also wanted to make sure you knew how to make these "resurrection" cookies in case you wanted to use as an object lesson for your children. It's a fun project, and one that teaches the true reason for Easter. You could do them ahead of time as you begin to talk about what Easter really means. If you click on the picture it will enlarge and you can print it off, but in case you can't read it, I'd be glad to email it to you as well.
I'm a little sad that my children are too old (and busy) to do these kinds of home projects any longer....so let me know how you use them and your stories of your children's responses. One day I"ll be a Grammy and do these things with my grands.....



On to more news......she's BAAAACCCKKKK......


..........yep my trusty little camera that I sent off to be repaired is back in factory condition, and thanks to Canon, free of charge! Yippee!!! They were Top notch in Customer care and earn an A+ in my book for taking care of the problem, quickly and relatively painless on my part! I'm so glad she's back, so she'll be helping more with my blogging!
And for more news....next week, I'll be celebrating a rather significant birthday, so I'm just gonna have me another giveaway. The last one was oh.such.fun, that I want to do it again! Check back on next Monday or Tuesday for the BIG 5-0 event...... yep, that's which one it's gonna be......
And tomorrow, Kimba's turning the internet off, and encouraging people to be out in the real world being people, ya know, unplugged, if you will. Well, it's already a VERY busy day for me and I probably wouldn't be around much anyway, but perhaps you've got a little touch of spring fever, and need to go out and play......


Then she's suggesting that we all come back and tell all about what you did, didn't do, what you got accomplished, etc...on Monday. Play along if you'd like.

I used to love "resurrection cookies" as a child. Unfortunately we don't have a mixer and I'm not feisty enough to whip the egg whites by hand, so they won't be a part of our Easter tradition this year. Maybe eventually.

When I was growing up we called these "forgotten cookies." I like your recipe title better!

Lisa said...

Glad you got your camera back! I have the recipe for the resurrection cookies but have never actually made them. OK, now you've talked me into dyeing eggs and baking cookies...just me and the dog:)

Woops! I'm here so clearly not unpluged! Love the cookie idea.
I feel lost without my camera, I'm glad yours is back home with you~
Okay, I am leaving the house today which will mean I'm away from my computer soooo, I'll unplug for a little while! Enjoy your free day~

Renee, we also called them forgotten cookies and I agree that the new title is so much better.

Suzanne, I hit that one next year! At least you're more grown up than I am so you have *that* to say for yourself.

Next time you are going to show a picture like that you had better have enough for everyone. Now I gotta have one!!!
Happy Friday!

I used to make those cookies with my girls every Easter...great memories and a wonderful way to teach what Easter is really all about. Glad your camera is finally on the mend!
