Making Resurrection Cookies

by | Apr 9, 2010 | Easter, Kids in the Kitchen | 4 comments

Even though we make Resurrection Cookies every year, this was the first time that Snuggles has participated.  One of the many things I love about having lots of children is that there are so many things we get to enjoy for “the first time” over and over again!  Even my older children, who have now memorized how to make these cookies, enjoyed participating once again and watching their little brother’s reactions to each step of the process. 

While I poured the vinegar into a little pinch bowl and explained that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given vinegar to drink, Snuggles begged for a taste. I wish I had a picture of his reaction… It was very similar to Chiquita’s from a couple years ago.

After adding the egg whites and vinegar to our bowl, I gave each child a little salt to taste.

Once again Snuggles was anxious to taste it, but then said “I no like salt!” and then more than willingly added the rest to the bowl.

Captain always beats the egg whites.  Sigh… He is growing up so fast!

When it was time to add the sugar, Snuggles said “No thank you!  I no like taste!!”  After tasting vinegar and salt, he wasn’t about to try one more thing!  Twinkle Toes then folded in the pecans.

All the children took turns scooping the cookies onto the cookie sheet…

… and then sealing them into the “tomb.”
Easter Morning, when we got home from Mass, the children found that the tomb was cracked open and the centers of all the cookies were empty.

    Good job everyone! We tried to make these this year, but they never hardened 🙁 The kids did enjoy the process though.

    I've thought about making these but they seem as though they'd taste weird and be hard as rocks and difficult to chew. Is that the case or do the kids actually enjoy eating them, too?

    ooh! That is too bad, Kelly! I wonder if our oven cooled down too quickly?

    Tienne ~ Ours are never too hard, they cook very slowly since the oven is shut off when they are placed inside, though they do tend to turn out a little differently each year… This year they were still somewhat soft/chewy and tended to melt/dissolve in your mouth. They are very tasty!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
