From Member Lisa-Marie (LDM)
Here are two COOKING ideas for the story of Jacob's Ladder (Stairway to Heaven, angels going up and down).
- "Jacob's Pillow"
- Rock cookies
Raisin Pillow Recipe
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. raisins
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
10 sheets filo pastry, frozen type
Peel, core and slice apples. Add lemon juice, nuts and raisins. Cool in refrigerator. Take 8 to 10 filo sheets. Place on damp cloth. Dab each one with butter. Be careful for they are thin and delicate. Put the cooled filling on the filo sheets. Spread evenly. Roll up with the towel carefully. (Do not roll the towel in the filo sheets. The towel is merely used to assist in rolling.)
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Put slits on top with a knife about every inch. P Put in oven for 30 minutes. Every 10 minutes dot with butter. Top with powdered sugar.
Rock Cookie Recipe
Butter – ½ cup (at room temperature)
Sugar – ½ cup
Flour – 1-1/2 cups
Egg - 1
Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
Vanilla – 1 teaspoon
Raisins – 10-15 (optional), lightly fried in ghee
Cinnamon - 1/2-inch piece stick (optional), powdered
Salt – ½ teaspoon
Method: Cream butter, sugar, and egg in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Mix in the flour, salt, vanilla essence, baking powder, raisins, and cinnamon powder. Refrigerate the mix for few minutes if needed to make it firm. Preheat oven to 320 degrees. Shape into lime-sized balls, sprinkle some sugar on the top, press down slightly, and place on a lightly greased pizza tray or cookie sheet allowing enough room for spreading. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 320 degrees or till the edges become slightly brown.
(Other neat ideas from this lesson set include: a rhythm workshop; music/teach 'We are climbing Jacob's ladder. For more detail, click here.
Now here's an interesting webpage:
Legend had it... that the Stone of Scone in Westminster Abbey is Jacob's pillow. The stone is also calledThe Stone of Destiny or the "Coronation" stone because it was used during coronation of English Kings.
