Easter Dinner, Carrot Rolls & Resurrection Rolls

When my friend Candy called the other day, and asked if I had ever seen these CUTE carrots, I knew I had to try them. The original recipe is found here.

The recipe says you need a cream horn. We didn't know what that was. Candy called a few stores, and found them at Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City, UT. We were in the minivan, and on the road to get them ten minutes later.

You can also find them HERE (affiliate link).

The recipe calls for wrapping crescent rolls around the cream horn. I happened to have Rhodes Bake and Serve in the freezer, so I used that instead. It looks kind of sick in the picture, but I painted egg yolks mixed with orange dye on the rolls.

They were ready to bake, and I just used the instructions on the back of the bag.

The recipe called for dill toppers, but I had lettuce. I thought it was cute anyway!

I filled them with egg salad sandwich filling. The kids were impressed, and they are getting one for lunch tomorrow.


My brothers always made these growing up, and called them, "vanishing rolls.," because the marshmallow vanishes. They baked them in muffin tins. I just baked them on a cookie sheet. All you do, is flatten roll dough. Roll a marshmallow in butter, and sprinkle in cinnamon sugar. Put the marshmallow in the center of the dough, and pinch all the sides shut around the marshmallow. Roll in butter again, and sprinkle in cinnamon. Bake according to package directions.

Just like the garden tomb, the rolls were empty. They were a great opening for our Easter lesson prepared by my parents.

I had to include a pic of my man, and sweet baby in their Easter clothes. Well, Rhett was done, and about to go down for a nap. But... his outfit was so cute! My hubby is cute too :)

Happy Easter All!

My fam loved them too. I like the lettuce. I couldn't find fresh dill at the store, so I grabbed cilantro for the look, but took the tops off when ready to eat.
Fun stuff.
Cute boys!

It has been so fun seeing that so many people have made my Crescent Carrots for Easter this year. Yours turned out great. It was fun to see all of your pictures and to know that the recipe worked with a different dough. It's nice when a recipe can be easily converted to what you have on hand. I think they look great with the lettuce and I'm sure Candy's looked great with Cilantro too.

Hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter.

I love those carrots, and since rabbits eat lettuce. Since you give the Easter bunny carrots, I think your idea is more appropriate than the dill. They really are cute, and sounds like you found a creative way for parents of picky eaters to have their kids have lunch.
