Paleo Resurrection Biscuits

Oh my! I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t had a good sweet in a long while or because these biscuits are really that good, but I don’t care. I gobbled down two of them. If you’ve read my report on Food Freedom Forever, then you know what I’m talking about when I say these are totally WORTH IT!

And even better, they are not difficult to make. I promise. And even better than that, this is a super sweet way to discuss the Easter story with your kids. We hadn’t made these for years because of that whole gluten free thing, but my kids talk about them every year. They made an impression! If you have little ones, this recipe is truly magical.

Get yourself in your kitchen and make these pronto. If you want to make this recipe any time other than Easter, you can turn them into monkey bread by rolling the dough into small balls and dipping each one in butter and then cinnamon sugar. Then place the dough in an 8 inch cake pan and bake as instructed below.

Or omit the sweeteners in the recipe, add fresh garlic and a sprinkle of good salt on top and turn them into the best garlic knots you’ve ever had.

Or slice them in half and use as buns for hamburgers or other sandwiches like we did in the picture below. This is a really adaptable dough and it’s super quick to put together.

I do recommend you watch the video linked here for some additional preparation tips. Just make them! You will not be disappointed.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease 9 cups of a large muffin pan.
  2. Add palm shortening, water, maple syrup and salt to a medium sized heavy sauce pan. Set the pan over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Once the mixture boils, whisk it together and then remove from heat and immediately stir in the tapioca starch. It will look really lumpy at this point. Don't worry.
  3. Continue to stir the tapioca starch until most of the liquid is absorbed. Then add 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon and all of the coconut flour. Begin stirring this in and then add the eggs and beat the mixture fast! You don't need a mixer, just a fast and strong arm.
  4. Continue mixing until you have a cohesive dough. See the video for more details.
  5. Pour the dough out onto a baking sheet or your counter just to allow it to cool a bit. Divide into 8 approximately equal sized pieces.
  6. Now you need two shallow dishes: one for the butter (melt the butter) and one for the cinnamon sugar (combine the remaining 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/4 cup coconut and/or maple sugar).
  7. Each marshmallow needs to be about one inch square or smaller so cut them down if needed.
  8. Roll each marshmallow in the melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar mixture. **Jesus is the marshmallow. You are preparing his body for burial with oil and spices by dipping in the butter and sugar.
  9. Then wrap one marshmallow (Jesus) in one piece of dough (the tomb). The dough will be sticky so dip your fingers in a little water to keep the dough from sticking to you too much. Carefully seal the marshmallow in the dough. The more you mess with this, the harder it is to work with. Watch the video for tips.
  10. Place each "Jesus" in a greased muffin cup and bake for 30 minutes. Closing the oven door represents the soldiers sealing the tomb with that big stone. Instead of waiting 3 days, we just have to wait 30 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven, carefully remove them from the baking pan. If any marshmallow leaked out, feel free to spoon that out on top of your biscuits.
  11. Contain yourself while you wait for them to cool a little bit. When you break one open, you should find that Jesus is not there! The tomb is empty!!
Recipe Notes

If you need or just want to keep this recipe totally paleo, I recommend you make Danielle Walker's homemade marshmallows from her Celebrations cookbook. The recipe makes a lot though, so either cut it down or just know you're going to have lots of marshmallows to munch on.
