Easter Story Cookie Recipe

I shared this Easter Story Cookie Recipe on the blog my first week of blogging…..it’s a fun activity to do this time of the year and thought I would share it again. When you open the cookies in the morning….they are empty!

It’s a great recipe to do with your children the night before Easter Sunday—–our family has used this recipe for years – from preschool parties, fun at home, etc.  It’s a wonderful way to tell the story of Easter to young ones.  Hope you enjoy!

{I used a picture from Tip Junkie because it showed the empty inside better than the picture I have of our cookies}

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 3 egg whites

  • 1 cup white sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Place pecans in a resealable plastic baggie. Crush the pecans into small bits. Read John 19:1-3

  4. Add egg whites to the vinegar. Read John 10:10-11
  5. Sprinkle salt into the egg whites. Read Luke 23:27
  6. So far, the mixture isn’t very appetizing. Add 1cup sugar. Read Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16. Beat with mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Read Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3.
  7. Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Read Matthew 27:57-60.
  8. Place cookies in the oven close the door and turn the oven off. Read Matthew 27:65-66.
  9. Go to bed. Read John 16:20 and 22.
