Sunday is Easter. I love Easter Eggs, Easter baskets, and getting dressed up for church, but I also like to make sure the focus on Easter is firmly on Jesus’ resurrection. That is the reason my family supports Easter, and I want to make sure my children don’t lose sight of that.
Still, sometimes it’s difficult to bring the point of Easter home, amidst Easter Egg hunts and other activities children generally find exciting and fun.
I first read the following recipe in the Roseburg News-Review when my daughter was a toddler. I love it, because it gets children involved in the Easter story, and explains it in such a way that they can remember and reflect on it’s meaning.
Except for the pecans, everything in this recipe is probably already in your cupboard. And if you can’t swing the pecans, use walnuts. They’re less expensive and work just as well.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. (Do this before doing anything else.)
What is your favorite Easter tradition? I’d love to hear it!
