Directions:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. 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 drink. 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 a 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.) Add 1 cup of 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 Psalms 34:8 and John 3:16) Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 14 minutes or until stiff peaks are formed. (Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid. Read Matthew 27:57-50) Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF. (These are all the directions I was given but I think it could go one step further as such:) The next morning open the oven and remove the cookies. (Explain that three days after Jesus was placed in the tomb He arose from the dead and the tomb was empty. Read Matthew 28:6)
