This year, we started a new Easter tradition in my family; making these resurrection buns together before our annual Easter egg hunt! I love the symbolism behind them. As they bake, the marshmallow inside melts away, leaving a hollow center- just like Jesus' empty tomb on Easter morning! My Munchkin enjoyed helping me pinch the dough around the marshmallows and roll them in the sugar mixture as well as eat them once they were done. What a great new tradition to have!
Makes 8 buns
8 large marshmallows
1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and separate crescent rolls into individual triangles.
2. In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
3. Place 1 marshmallow into the center of a dough triangle. Carefully wrap the dough around the marshmallow.
4. Pinch the seams together tightly to seal in marshmallow as it melts.
5. Roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining marshmallows and croissant dough.
6. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes, and serve warm.
