He Is Risen!~Easter Cross Cookies

Easter, He Is Risen!

One of my favorite songs that our choir sings is, "Love Grew Where the Blood Fell".

It's a beautiful song and it begins like this:
"See my Jesus on the cross, the people crying.
Looking on, a man would think it tragedy.
But what the world could not see,
Was when they nailed Him to that tree.
It broke the chains of sin and set men free!

Love grew where the blood fell.
Flowers of Hope sprang up for men in misery.
Sin died where the blood fell.
And I'm so glad his precious blood covers me!"

God's Word says in John 3:16→
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Also in Romans 10:9→
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

I am so thankful for God's Love, Mercy and Grace.
He has extended them all to every soul on this earth.

Today would be a great day to invite Him into your heart!πŸ’—

Here are my Happy Easter Cross Cookies celebrating His love for us.
To make and decorate these cookies you will need:
Chocolate cookie dough
Chocolate fondant
Green candy melts
Cross cutters-(I used a 4 inch and a 2 inch)
Disposable decorating bags
Corn syrup
I also used green cake sparkles
I made my cookies using Georganne's yummy chocolate cookie dough recipe.

Roll out dough, cut and bake cookies.
To make the wood grain crosses, roll out fondant, place in folder and press. Remove fondant and cut out with clean cross cutters. 
Jesus built a bridge with two pieces of wood and three nails.
 Attach fondant to cookie with a little corn syrup. Place candy melts in decorator bag and melt in 30 second increments in microwave stopping to knead bag at each interval. Mine took 90 seconds.
 Snip off just the small tip from bag.
Pipe green stems for flowers.
 Place flowers and sprinkle on the green sparkles or green sprinkles if you like.
I love these old rugged crosses and plan to make them for our Sunday School class. 😊
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter, KarenπŸ’Ÿ
