Empty Tomb Crescents Roll Recipe

Empty Tomb Crescents roll recipe, perfect for a fantastic Easter breakfast. Marshmallow rolled into a crescent forming an empty hole when broke open.
Explain that each marshmallow represents Jesus' body which was wrapped (covered in sugar mixture) and placed in the tomb which was then sealed tight (closed up in the dough.) Read: Matthew 27:57-60.
When the "tombs" are ready to serve, have each person break theirs open and experience the emptiness of the tomb. Explain that Jesus was raised from the dead and His followers were amazed to find the tomb empty. Read: Matthew 28:1-9.

1 (2 1/4 teaspoons) package dry yeast
1/3 cup water (100-110 degrees F)
1 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon shortening
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups flour, divided
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter, melted

16 marshmellows
1/2 cup melted butter
cinnamon powder to cover marshmellows

Oven Temp: 400°
Recipe Cooking Time: to 15 minutes
Empty Tomb Crescent Pan Type: Cookie Sheet

Empty Tomb Crescents Directions

Preheat oven and line cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick vegetable spray.
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast and 1 teaspoon of the sugar in the warm water. Let sit until foamy - 10 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine remaining sugar, salt and 1 1/2 cups flour. Once the yeast is foamy, stir in beaten egg followed by the shortening and butter. Combine the flour mixture with the yeast and egg mixture, stirring the dough until it forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out onto a floured surface and slowly add the last cup of flour, kneading to achieve a smooth, elastic consistency. Be careful not to add too much flour. Use as little as possible - you may not need to add all the flour.

Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease the top of the dough. Let rise in a warm place (85 degrees F) until doubled, about 1 hour.

***TIP*** At this point if you want to use the dough for something other than crescents, you can shape it as desired.

To form crescents:
When Empty Tomb crescent dough is done rising, rolling into a 12-inch circle 1/4 inch thick. Spread with the softened butter and cut each circle into 16 wedges. Lay the crescent rolls on a prepared cookie sheet about an inch and half away from each other. Roll the marshmallows in the warm butter and sprinkle with cinnamon powder to cover them. Place the marshmallow on the narrow end of each crescent and roll up each wedge leaving seam side down, on the baking sheet.
Curve to form crescents. Cover and let rise until doubled, approximately 45 to 60 minutes.

Bake in a preheated oven until rich golden brown.

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
