Snack: Easter Resurrection Buns


Make these Resurrection Buns the night before Easter to serve to children on Easter morning. Children will enjoy biting into these buns to find that they’re empty-just as Jesus’ tomb was empty on Easter morning.


  1. Soak one package of dry yeast in 1/2 cup lukewarm water.
  2. Mix in…
    2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    12 cups flour
  3. Knead the dough until smooth. Knead down the dough every hour for four hours.

Roll out lumps of the dough to form 4-inch circles. Wrap each dough circle around a marshmallow and close tightly. Roll the dough in melted butter and then in a sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place the rolls in well-greased pans, cover with plastic, and let rise all night.

Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. The marshmallows will melt and leave a sticky syrup in the buns. Makes about 7 dozen buns.
