We have been making these rolls for years now. I don’t even remember how long, but it seems like they have always been part of our Easter celebration. Since we started celebrating Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, we can no longer eat these on Easter. In fact, last year, these rolls were the most missed aspect of our former Easter Celebrations. So this year, I made them before Passover. The kids were so happy!
1 roll Refrigerated Crescent Roll dough, in the tube
2 TBS melted butter
4 TBS sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
We never measure. In fact, I, personally, have not made these in awhile, as the kids take over and want to do it all themselves. Leftover butter and cinnamon sugar can be used on toast, so we don’t mind if there are leftovers.
Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. To assemble, separate the crescent roll dough.
Dip a marshmallow into the melted butter, then into the cinnamon sugar.
Place onto the crescent roll. Seal the edges of the crescent roll securely.
If they are not sealed well, the marshmallow will leak out onto the cookie sheet while baking.
Bake according to package directions.
As you can see, some of ours opened while baking. That’s ok, they are still delicious!
You can tell the Easter story while assembling these rolls, that is, in fact, why they are called Resurrection Rolls. As your assembling the rolls, tell the kids that the marshmallow represents Jesus. The melted butter and the cinnamon sugar represent the oil and spices they anointed Jesus with. The crescent roll represents the tomb. After cooking, the empty roll represents the empty tomb.
My kids would actually eat these everyday, they are that good. Everyone that I have served these to, loves them. You will be glad you tried them, even if it’s not around Easter time when you make them.
