Food on Fridays with AnnAn idea for next Easter comes from Creating Family Traditions, by Gloria Gaither & Shirley Dobson. It’s simple, sweet and symbolic:Resurrection BunsJust like the tomb on Easter Sunday, these tasty buns are empty on the inside.1 pkg Rhodes frozen rolls (I used Bob Evans, which were the only ones available)24 large marshmallows1/4 C (1/2 stick) melted butter or margarine1/2 C sugar mixed with 1/2 t cinnamonThaw the rolls. Flatten each roll to about 3″ in diameter. Place a large marshmallow in the center of the dough and pinch the dough together to seal the marshmallow inside. Roll between palms of your hands into the size of a golf ball. Dip in the melted butter, then roll in the cinnamon sugar. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet spaced apart evenly. Let rise until double in size (30 to 60 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 or 20 minutes until golden brown. Rmoved from sheet and cool on wire rack.Here are ours fresh from the oven:This one, held by my brother, an amateur hand model (you think I’m joking?), has been broken open to reveal that it’s empty inside:And another, more subtle hole:Thanks to the cinnamon sugar and melted marshmallow, these turn out to be incredibly sweet, sweet rolls. I’m not sure their empty centers made much of a spiritual impact on the kids, but we sure enjoyed eating them.

looks “extremely” delicious!!
thanks for the recipe!! 🙂
Very interesting. I’ve heard of Easter Story cookies, but never rolls. Great object lesson, and a lot quicker than waiting for the cookies (since it requires an overnight wait).
Stretch Mark Mama says
Oh, I miss Bob Evans.
Ann …so perfect to point out to all at our tables it is not just another day. The premade rolls look so fresh and wonderful, capital my dear! What a time saver.
Those look awesome!
I’m linking to an older post because I’m woefully out of sync with your linkies and indeed EVERYTHING!
Will I ever get my groove back?
Aja Abney says
What a great idea, and very doable! I’ll definitely keep this in mind for next year. If I can remember that far in advance. LOL
What a neat idea! I love sweets, so this sounds really good to me.
This is wonderful!! Object lessons that you can eat. Good job!!
I will be trying this today. My kids want Pizza Balls again tonight, so I’ll make some extra dough and make these too.
I have to laugh, I told my husband that I was going to be making rolls to go with dinner the other night and he went right for the freezer to grab the Rhoades.
The two bad things about that is obviously we don’t have dinner rolls very often. And when I want to make some, he doesn’t see me making them from scratch!!
The dough in the freezer, well that is another story. I bought the dough to make something and I can’t remember when or what. I am sure they have been in the freezer for at least a year, maybe 2!! yikes!!!
For me bread dough is easy, it takes only a couple of minutes tops, to throw the ingredients into the bread maker and let it knead the dough and rest it. Then I re-knead for a couple of minutes, then I shape it and bake it in my oven.
To me this is faster than remembering to pull the frozen dough out and thaw it.
When I really timed myself making the dough, I found out that it only took a couple of minutes. I used to think it was a huge job. But it has become very simple for me and not stressful at all.
Thanks Ann for this post, I am looking forward to making them tonight.
OK so I made them. Well two of them. I forgot to put sugar and cinnamon on them, but them if you read my update for my Pizza Buns, you will see what happened. (Find update Here)
Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I used hard dried out marshmallows.** Because they were open and I wasn’t going to open a new bag. They worked out beautifully. I had huge open cavities inside my rolls. It was awesome.
I will make more with photo’s soon I hope.
(**Sometimes Mr. Nobody comes to our house and doesn’t put things away properly or makes a mess. If I ask the family if they know anything about it, they all say, “not me, not me.” So it must be Mr. Nobody.)
Thanks again Ann, you’re so sweet to share.
