"These cookies are great to do with the kids. They are to be prepared the night before Easter. The spiritual preparation goes along with the physical preparation of the cookies." — Sonia

distilled white vinegar
What a neat way to teach kids about Jesus! I followed the recipe except added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. I used a kitchen aid mixer and whipped on high for 10 minutes, then another 2 minutes and finally another 2 minutes. I got about 28 small to medium sized beautifully white and delicate cookies! I used crushed walnuts in only half the batter. I think they tastes rather good and ate 3 myself.
I used this recipe for the children in my Sunday School class. I have never had such participation from the children. I had parents come up and thank me. They said their children came home and told them about their lesson in class.
My kids loved helping to prepare these cookies and they really liked the meaning behind it and understood what Jesus did on the cross for us. I know I'll be doing this every year,and I added some real vanilla extract in with it so it would taste better even though you weren't suppose to about 1 teaspoon, it really took alot of that vinegar taste away.
Amazing cookies!! We now have a new Easter eve tradition! I made the following changes: almonds instead of pecans and add 1 tsp of vanilla for extra flavor. We made these the night before Easter and then brought some to Easter dinner with the rest of the family. They were a BIG hit! My son loved making them and retelling the Easter story to the family at Easter dinner. Everyone kept asking where I found the recipe, how we made these and how we got them to be hollow. We will be making these again!
I was so excited to see this recipe that I have made copies for my children and friends to do with there children. And I know that the women at church will want this recipe. This is such a BLESSING. GOD BLESS YOU FOR IT....
I think this made an impression with my kids on Easter. The "tomb" was ... They (ages 4 & 6) helped with each step. I would use parchment paper next time though. They stuck and were hard to remove from the pan.
I am giving 5 stars not for the tasty (I don't really like them- too sweet), but for the story and experience that goes with them. A good family tradition!
