|Resurrection Buns by Posed Perfection #Easter #breakfast|
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.
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!
