Using Ressurection Biscuits to Teach About Easter

Using Resurrection Biscuits to Teach your Autistic Child about Easter

I just love this time of year. 

Warmer weather is approaching.

Flowers are blooming.

Summer is around the corner.

And a very important holiday and celebration in the Christian faith, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is upon us.

For my family, it means a big celebration and lots of baking! You can check out my post from last year about how we celebrate Easter.

One of my favorite things to make this time of year are Resurrection Biscuits.

They are super easy and require barely any knowledge or previous experience in baking.

I use the Resurrection Biscuits to teach my children the story of Jesus Resurrection. And you can too!

We made these early this month and the kids loved it!

For the whole day and the next, every time they ate one they would exclaimed “It’s empty! Just like Jesus tomb!”

I love hearing that! And I love that this is such an easy way to remember the story.

What you need:

Large marshmallows

Can(s) of crescent rolls or other biscuits



Melted unsalted butter

Let’s get started!

Mix about 1/2 cup white sugar and a tablespoon of cinnamon. You can alter the amount of each depending on how much you love cinnamon and how much sugar you want to use.

Open and lay out the biscuits.

Take on marshmallow. Dip it in the melted butter and then roll it around in the cinnamon sugar.

Place the marshmallow in the center of the crescent or biscuit. Wrap the dough tightly around the marshmallow.

Continue with the steps until you run out of the biscuits you intended to use. I used 2 cans, so 16 biscuits. 

Place them on a baking dish. Make sure it’s non-stick. The sugar might leak out and you don’t want a big mess to clean up later.

Sprinkle extra cinnamon sugar on the biscuits.

Bake in the oven at 350*F or what ever your can of biscuits recommends.

Bake until they are golden brown in color.

Remove from over once they are done and let them cool.

Once they are cooled you can cut one in half, or let your child bite one. 

It will be empty! No more marshmallow!

My kids were so surprised! I loved their reaction.

These are super yummy and a great way to start the conversation about the true meaning of Easter.

You got this, Mama!

Heis not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. – Matthew 28:6
