Resurrection Crescents

from Jessica Tower -

Pick up the fixin's for this yummy Easter treat and a family devotional too! It's a fun project for the kids to help you with, and illustrates the story of Easter and Jesus' resurrection. These are SO good; you'll want to double the recipe. J.T.

1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

Separate rolls into eight triangles.
Combine sugar and cinnamon.
Dip each marshmallow (Jesus' body) into butter, roll in cinnamon-sugar.
Place on a triangle (explain that Jesus' friends put spices on His body and wrapped it in cloths).
Pinch dough around marshmallow, sealing all edges.
Dip tops of dough into remaining butter and cinnamon-sugar.
Place with sugar side up on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake in oven (tomb) at 375 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes.
Serve warm.

During the baking, the marshmallows melt and when you open the roll, it is empty inside! He is not here! He is risen!

Notes from Jessica:
~ Some recipes say to put these in muffin tins. They get very sticky and messy, and I've found that cleaning off a flat cookie sheet or baking pan is a lot easier than cleaning muffin tins.
