SHOP TALK: Resurrection Rolls
by Ashley Fritsche
Welcome back to Shop Talk here at The Featherweight Shop! We love our local chit chat with staff, gathering around the dinette table so-to-speak (because that is what we have!) and sharing. In these segments, we share patterns, recipes, organizational ideas, history quips, gardening tips, crafty projects, and smiles about learning an old-fashioned way of doing things. Shop Talk is the fun tidbits of news!
Easter is right around the corner, and we are busy in the kitchen, making delicious Easter treats! Today, Wendy's family shares a longtime favorite recipe, Resurrection Rolls. These sweet rolls are not just scrumptious treats for the entire family to enjoy, but also an excellent way to give a hands-on lesson to describe the symbolism of Christ's resurrection from the tomb.
Wendy is the Business Administrator for The Featherweight Shop, the "behind the scenes" woman who keeps our gears turning! We are so thankful to have her on our team! Wendy's daughter Carrie, and granddaughter Mercy (first of 13 grandchildren) are making Resurrection Rolls in celebration of Easter this year.
Carrie and her children have made Resurrection Rolls almost every year, except when they were moving across the country. They do this to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This recipe shows the depiction of the empty tomb as well as other symbolism that you can find at the end of this blog. All of Wendy's children find joy in making these rolls to remind their children of the reason we celebrate Easter!

Carrie & Mercy's treats look delicious! They have the beautiful golden brown tint on the top of the rolls which means they are ready to come out of the oven.
Making these rolls together are a sweet way to spend time with family, make memories, and remind us all of the symbolism this recipe holds.
Marshmallow represents the body of Christ
Butter represents the oils used in burial
Cinnamon and sugar represent the spices used to perfume the body
The dough represents the tomb
