Resurrection Buns

Resurrection Buns by Posed Perfection #Easter #breakfast
These delicious Resurrection Buns have been our Easter morning tradition since our kids were really little. Since Easter morning is about the Risen Lord Jesus, these buns are the perfect visual cue for the kiddos to remember what Easter is all about. The best part is you can make these on Saturday night, put them in the refrigerator and bake them on Easter morning for a deliciously sweet breakfast treat.
Here's what you need to make them: jumbo biscuits, large marshmallows, sugar, cinnamon, and butter.
These are great to make with your kids as you describe some of the elements of the Easter story. Begin by lightly flouring your work surface. Then, using a rolling pin, roll out each biscuit to flatten.
With a pastry brush, spread some melted butter on top of the flattened biscuit.
Next, mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle some of the sugar and cinnamon mixture over the butter. (Here you can talk about how Jesus' body was to be anointed with spices for His burial.)
Place a marshmallow in the center of the biscuit (Describing that is is white and pure just like Jesus.) Bring up the sides of the biscuit around the marshmallow to create a "tomb".
Make sure your seams are pinched tight to keep the melted marshmallow from oozing out.
Dip the top in melted butter. Then dip it in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Finally, place each roll, with the seams on the bottom, in a 13 x 9 pan lightly sprayed with oil.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or however long your package of biscuits indicates. Remove from oven and let them cool slightly.
Resurrection Buns

1 tube jumbo biscuits
8 large marshmallows
2-3 Tbsp. melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly flour work surface and flatten biscuits with a rolling pin. With a pastry brush, spread some melted butter over the top of the biscuit. Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle generously over the melted butter. Place a marshmallow in the center of the biscuit and bring the sides up and around to form a "tomb" around the marshmallow. Make sure to pinch all the seams so that the melted marshmallow stays inside the bun. Gently brush the flour off the top of the bun. Dip the bun into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place in lightly greased 13 x 9 pan and bake for time indicated on biscuit can (about 12-15 minutes). Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. The melted marshmallows will be very hot.

What you should find when you bite into them is the same thing that the women found when they went to prepare Jesus' body with spices... an empty tomb! Your Resurrection Buns will be hollow in the center with a delicious gooey sauce in the bottom of the bun where the marshmallow has melted together with the spices. This is when you proclaim, "He is risen! He is risen, indeed!"

Not only are these Resurrection Buns delicious, but the meaning behind them will stick with your kids long after the stickiness of their hands is washed away. You can share with them that giving His life for us was the sweetest gift Jesus gave us.

I hope you have a wonderful a wonderful Easter weekend celebrating the Risen Lord with family and friends!
