I’d never heard of Resurrection Cookies… but Christians are supposed to make them with their children, explaining the Bible along the way:
1. Preheat oven to 300 F. 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.
2. 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. Read John 19:28-30.
Andy Welfle of Freethought Fort Wayne is running a contest to find the Great Atheist Cookie Recipe:
The lessons can be tongue-in-cheek (example: bake at 350°. Explain this represent that atheists are the devil’s children), or serious demonstrations of issues important to atheists or freethinkers (example: Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Explain this represents the separation of church and state).
Surely, you can come up with something that’s yummy, hilarious, and/or educational 🙂
