      Great recipe for the kids (and grandkids).
      Hope you enjoy all your Easter blessings and treats too!

      Easter Cookies
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees

      1 c. whole pecans
      1 tsp. vinegar
      3 egg whites
      pinch salt
      1 c. sugar
      zipper baggie
      wooden spoon

      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.
      Read 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
      Read John 19:28-30

      Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His
      life to give us life.
      Read 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.
      Read Luke 23-27.

      So far the ingredients are not very appetizing so add 1 c 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.
      Read Ps. 34:8 and John 3:16.

      Beat with a mixer on high for 12-15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed.
      Explain that the color white represents the purity in God's eyes of those
      whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus.
      Read 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
      Read 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.
      Read 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. Read 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.
      Read Matt 28:1-9
