Resurrection Rolls....An Easter Tradition.....

Each Easter....for a long, long, time now....
On Easter Eve, my sister invites her nephews and nieces (but, her only 2 nieces are both married with families of their own...so mostly it's the nephews)....and any of the nephews' friends or grandchildren who care to join in....
to come to her house to make Resurrection Rolls....

My sister is a baker extraordinaire...let me tell you....
and these rolls are no exception....
But what makes them extra special is the symbol of Easter they represent:




A marshmallow is placed in each roll before they are baked.
And when they are done....


Voila!  There is an empty "tomb" where the marshmallow was.
Cool, huh??
(Sorry there's only half to show...I ate the other half...and then both halves....They are YUMMY!!)
The boys (this year, aged 6 - 22+) love it.
And I can't think of a better way to celebrate the season!
Thanks Sis!!!

P.S......



Could that possibly be spring on the horizon???

Easter Blessings and Joy to You....
