Resurrection Rolls - A Sweet Easter Treat

I cook a lot of stuff from scratch.  I think it is healthier.  I think it taste better.  I know it is cheaper.  The nice thing, my kids love to cook too.  Wait is that a nice thing...it definitely adds to the mess.  I guess it is nice.  It is fun to see them having a good time and playing together.  This Easter we didn't have church until 1 o'clock so we decided to use our morning making Resurrection Rolls.  Most of the people who make Resurrection Rolls do so using crescent rolls from a can.  I never have any so I went online to find a recipe for from scratch rolls.  I found the recipe I used on Love From Scratch.

3/4 cup warm water
1 large egg
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons dry milk
1 and 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
24 marshmallows

Mix first eight ingredients and let rise until doubled.  Divide into 20-24 balls and flatten.  Dip marshmallows in melted butter and then dip them in the sugar and cinnamon.  Place the marshmallow in the center of the flattened ball and wrap the roll around the marshmallow.  Dip again in the butter and then roll in the sugar/cinnamon mix.  Place on a greased pan and allow to rise until doubled.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

While we were putting the rolls together we talked about Jesus and the Resurrection.  We talked about how the marshmallows represented Jesus's body and how after he died his followers took him down and rubbed it with oil (the butter) and spices (the sugar and cinnamon).  They then wrapped him in linen wraps (the roll) and placed him in the tomb.  When the rolls come out they are hallow in the center.  While we were eating the rolls we talked about how when the disciples came to the tomb they found it empty.  It was a great/delicious way to spend Easter.

Easter we also spent some time in the back yard.  Can I just tell you how much I am loving spring.  Enjoy looking at my beauties in a tree...in their Easter outfits :)
