Jesus Rolls (aka Resurrection Rolls) GLUTEN FREE

I was just given the how to on making these rolls the other day, and i was bummed. It called for a can of crescent rolls and... well there is the gluten thing! LOL. So here i am thinking, with all those wonderful ladies out there cooking, is there a gluten free crescent roll recipe that could be used as a substitute?


This is a recipe that I found posted by several ppl, im not sure who the original person is, but it definitely was not me... so...

Crescent Rolls

1/2 stick butter (note - that is 1/4 cup), room temperature
3/4 cup small curd cottage cheese

1 cup gf flour mix
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 TBS sugar

In the bowl of your mixer, combine the butter and cottage cheese. Add dry ingredients. Mix until a ball of dough forms.

Wrap in plastic wrap and chill 2 hours (I left mine overnight, as I wanted it ready in the morning).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On lightly floured piece of parchment paper, roll the dough into a 14 inch circle. Cut into 8 triangles (really easy with a pizza cutter).

Roll each triangle from wide end to tip, turning ends to form a crescent shape. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake 20 to 30 minutes.
BUT!!!! Dont cook them!!! this is why that part of the recipe is small. The goal here is not Cresent Rolls but Resurrection Rolls, right?

So... Here is how you do Resurrection Rolls...

Got your kids?

You need:
Crescent dough (in triangles)
Large Marshmellows
Melted butter
Cinnamon and Sugar mixed together

Got that?

Now, give each child a triangle and explain to them that it represents the Tomb that Jesus was placed in.
Now give them a marshmellow that represents the body of Jesus.
Dip the marshmellows into the butter, then roll in the cinnamon and sugar. Explain how during that time bodies were anointed before burial with oils and spices.
Place the marshmellow on the dough and very carefully wrap it around the marshmallow, Making sure all the seams are pinched together well. (thus the marshmellow wont oooze out of the seams)

Now you can bake! We have the oven preheated to 350 from the Crecent Recipe, right? Now we place the rolls onto parchment sheets and bake for 20 to 30 minutes.

Allow them to cool.

When your child breaks open the "tomb" they will find it hollow and empty. The body of Christ is no longer there. Celebrate Jesus's life and God's wonderous love together!

Thanks for posting this Angela! The girls and I had fun making these this morning (with pre-made croissants). We only had success keeping one 'tomb' from oozing (LOL!). It didn't affect the fun or the message though! And, they were quite tasty. HAPPY EASTER!

This sounds yummy but the way I HAVE to eat -- this is one of those yummy foods that I MUST stay far away from..

Thank you so much for this recipe! Making Ressurection Rolls has been an Easter tradition in our family, but with a recently discovered gluten allergy we had to find a gluten free recipe. This recipe worked well!
