Resurrection Rolls

This year we decided to make some "Resurrection Rolls" instead of hot cross buns.  Here's how to do it.

¾ cup warm water  /  1 large egg  /  3 cups flour   /  1 teaspoon salt  /  3 tablespoons sugar  /  6 tablespoons butter  /  3 tablespoons dry milk  /  1- ½ teaspoon yeast  
½ cup butter (melted)  /  1 cup sugar  /  1 tablespoon cinnamon  /  24 marshmallows

First mix the first eight ingredients together and leave to rise until doubled in size.
 Divide dough into 24 pieces.  (we found this was too much, I'm guessing it's depending how well your dough has risen).  Then flatten each piece.
Melt the butter in one bowl and mix the sugar and cinnamon together in another bowl.  Dip the marshmallow into the melted butter.
(The marshmallow represents Jesus and His purity.  The melted butter represents the oil of embalming)
 Then into the cinnamon sugar mix.
(Represents the spices used to anoint Jesus' body)
 Place the covered mashmallow on your flatten dough piece.
 Wrap it up tightly in the dough.
(Represents Jesus being put in the tomb)
 Place on a greased baking tray
 We rolled the outside in the butter and cinnamon mix too.  Then bake in the oven at F350 for 15 minutes.
 When you bite into them most of the marshmallow (Jesus) has gone (He has risen!)
 If your dough is a little thin the marshmallow does just burst out of the top and "Jesus' doesn't "rise" from the tomb!  But they are still VERY yummy.
We will definately do these again.  We will probably cut the dough into less pieces to guarantee that "Jesus" rises in all of them.

Happy Easter to you all!
