Like the Resurrection Rolls, these Empty Tomb Cookies also offer a great opportunity to talk about the resurrection all throughout the process. The provided link has some great step-by-step instructions, with verses to read at every step.

Easter Bread  via Food Network

This bread is a tradition at our house. The three braided strands represent the Trinity, the wreath represents the crown of thorns and the eggs represent new life. The eggs are dyed red to remember Jesus’ blood that was shed for us.
