Here’s the second try this year.
Here’s the first try of the year.
I’m doing something a bit different today for the Recipe Exchange with Little House on the Prairie Living, because this is more than just a recipe for this week leading up to the death and resurrection of our Savior. SUNDAY was Palm Sunday, when Jesus Christ entered Jerusalem, to the cheers of the crowds. TODAY was the remembrance of the Passover, when the lives of those who placed the sacrificial blood over their doorways were spared, with a Seder meal.
“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.
This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD–a lasting ordinance.” Exodus 12:13-14
FRIDAY we remember Christ’s horrible and cruel death, and SUNDAY we CELEBRATE His RESURRECTION. His LIFE brings us LIFE. He paid the price for MY sins, YOUR sins, ALL of our sins. Choosing to repent of my sins, receive His forgiveness and mercy and follow Him, was the BEST choice I EVER made!
So today I’m sharing a recipe for Resurrection Cookies. They give true story of God’s love, sacrifice and forgiveness, while making a cookie resembling an empty tomb.
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” ~Isaiah 53:5

Here are some other ideas to help us remember the true reason we celebrate this week:
A week long “journey” from Baby Be Blessed
Resurrection Eggs from Easy Fun School
And Easter Story Snack Mix from Clubhouse Magazine
And look at this sweet little plate I found this year, representing the Lamb of God, Jesus the Christ!!
As you can see in the photos of my two batches on two different days, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, depending on humidity and such. I promise you, EVERY other time I’ve made these, they’ve come out hollow! :>
