EASTER STORY COOKIES: Make the evening before Easter... 1c. Whole Pecans 1
tsp. Vinegar 1c. Sugar Zipper Baggie 3 Egg Whites Tape Wooden Spoon Pinch Salt

Preheat oven to 300° (This is important-- Do it now!) Place pecans in zipper
baggie and let children beat them with the wooden spoon to break into small
pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested He was beaten by the Roman
soldiers. (John 19:1-3.) Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. vinegar
into mixing bowl. Explain that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given
vinegar to drink. (John 19:28-30.) Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent
life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life. (John 10:10-11.)
Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and brush the
rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus'
followers, and the bitterness of our own sin. (Luke 23:27.) So far the
ingredients are not appetizing. Add 1c. sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of
the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong
to Him. (Ps. 34:8 and John 3:16.) Beat with a mixer for 12-15 minutes until
stiff peaks are formed. Explain that the white represents the purity in God's
eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. (Isa. 1:18 and John
3:1-3.) Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper covered cookie
sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was
laid. (Matt. 27:57-60.) Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and
turn the oven OFF. Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door.
Explain that Jesus' tomb was sealed. (Matt. 27:65-66.) GO TO BED! Explain that
they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus' followers
were in despair when the tomb was sealed. (John 16:20 and 22.) On Easter
morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface
and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Easter Jesus' followers
were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. (Matt. 28:1-9.)
