There are so many traditional, meaningful foods prepared at Easter that it’s hard to point to one that has the most meaning; however, it would be hard to top these gluten free Resurrection Rolls (sometimes called Empty Tombs).
The pure white marshmallows represent the Savior, anointed with spices and oils (butter and cinnamon/sugar), wrapped in linens (the dough) and placed inside the tomb with a large stone barring the entrance (the oven). The symbolism goes further once these rolls have baked and the marshmallow inside has disappeared, reminding us that our Savior was no longer in the tomb after 3 days, but had risen from the dead.
It’s a powerful message made easier to understand for younger ones when they participate in the making and eating of these Resurrection Rolls at Easter.
Be sure to use my award-winning gfJules Flour to make this dough, as it adds the stretch you’ll need to wrap this gluten free dough easily around the marshmallow inside. Its light texture also yields a fine crumb on these hollow rolls, making them even lighter and more delicate, just like you’d want them to be.
Simply follow the step-by-step directions in the recipe card, as well as the illustration of each step pictured below. Then place the rolls into muffin tins for baking, as pictured below.
After baking, they will have puffed up even further, and they will be very lightly browned.
If you’e ever made my gluten free crescent rolls, you’ll be familiar with this easy recipe that forms the basis of the dough itself.
Made with my gfJules™ Flour, the dough is very pliable and easy to work with — even for little hands. Double the recipe if you’d like to have more to share — as written, it makes 6 large rolls.Print

Prepare one recipe of gfJules Gluten Free Crescent Rolls dough.
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Spray or oil large muffin pans and set aside.
Lightly flour a pastry mat or clean counter with gfJules™ Flour. Roll crescent dough to 1/8-inch thick and cut into 4×4-inch squares.
Dip one marshmallow into melted butter, then into a bowl with mixed sugar and cinnamon.
Follow how-to photo above the recipe card to see each step illustrated:
1- Place marshmallow into the center of one square of dough. Using your finger, lightly wet the edges of the dough square with water so the dough will stick together.
2- Pull up one corner of the dough and press together with opposite dough corner.
3- Repeat with the other remaining corners.
4 & 5 – Dip top of roll into melted butter and sugar and cinnamon mixture, then place seam-side-down into an oiled muffin cup. In the alternative, simply place roll, seam-side-down into oiled muffin cup then brush entire top with melted butter or oil.
Repeat with remaining dough, gathering up any dough scraps and re-rolling to use all the dough.
Bake in preheated oven for 11-13 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the dough comes out clean. Remove to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing from the pans to finish cooling.
The marshmallows should have melted completely, or have melted and pooled in the bottom of the cavity inside the rolls, leaving sugar and cinnamon behind.
Once cooled, ice with crosses on top, if desired.
While these rolls are perfect for Easter, they also happen to be delicious, so make them anytime you want a yummy roll with a sweet surprise center.
