Cookies as a Teaching Aide

8 Apr

I saw this pin and simply thought, “Ew. Those look pretty gross.”


And then, seeing the link, I thought this might warrant more investigation. Also I wanted to know if these were pre-cooking, or finished cookies. (Again, “EW”)

The link leads to a Christian Woman’s cooking blog and her entry for “Empty Tomb Cookies”. The blog post ins structured in a way to encourage making these cookies and using the steps/ingredients to explain the true meanings of Easter.

Of course, whenever anyone attempts to explain the true meaning of Easter – especially with sweets involved – I think of this.

I recommend reading the post, but here are some of my favorite parts:


“Have your children beat some pecans, and then tell them that they just beat metaphorical Jesus. Kids will love this so much, they will break spoons with the ferocity of their torture! Aren’t kids adorable?”


No- that’s her face when she realized she’s going to spend the whole day listening to torture porn when all she wants is some damn cookies.


Because salt is bitter. Not…you know…salty.


I can’t see anything confirming the hollowness in this picture, but I’ll take your word for it.

Bonus: Favorite Comments

Gotta get that brainwashing in as early as possible:



I totally want my kids to be “children off God”.

    I realize this post is a year old, but I just found it today. What the ever loving hell is this? It literally made me sick to my stomach. Even worse were the comments…everyone falling over themselves to fawn about how wonderful this idea is!
