Delicious rolls for Easter has been a family tradition since I was a child. My grandmother would wake up at 4 am to start baking for the family. I can still remember the inviting smell. A few years ago when I had three children under the age of 4, I discovered a Disappearing Marshmallow Roll recipe in the Friend Magazine that I knew would be a fun and delicious way to continue the tradition of Easter rolls.
Each step of the recipe is an opportunity to teach part of the resurrection story. My children always get excited when they discover the crescent roll is empty and the marshmallow has disappeared. It’s a beautiful reminder that the tomb was empty and that Jesus Christ lives. My daughter has added singing songs about the Savior to our Easter tradition. Hearing her sweetly sing, “Now I am here in a beautiful place, learning the teachings of Jesus,” as we bake is the perfect addition to our tradition that began long ago with my grandmother’s rolls.
