"Feasting" upon the Word

Awhile ago, I found this recipe for for a family home evening that included a lesson and a treat in one. I found it at FHE in a Snap . It is pretty clever. I did change it up a bit so here is my version.

Feast Upon the Word Cookies

3/4 cup ____________“The words of his mouth were smoother than ____” (Ps. 55:21)

1/3 cup _____________“Come unto me all ye ends of the earth, buy ____ and honey”
(2 Ne. 26:25)

1 1/2 cups _____________“To what purpose cometh there to me … the ____ ____ from a far country?” (Jer. 6:20)

2 _____________“As one gathereth ____ that are left, have I gathered all the earth” (Isa. 10:14)

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups _________“And Solomon’s provision for one day was thirty measures of fine ____”
(1 Kgs. 4:22)

1 teaspoon ___________“Take thou also unto thee principal spices … and of sweet ____ half so much” (Ex. 30:23)

1 teaspoon ___________“Ye are the ____ of the earth” (Matt. 5:13)

1/2 teaspoon ___________“The kingdom of heaven is like unto ____ (Matt. 13:33)

3 cups ___________“Nevertheless … ____ for the horse” (D&C 89:17)
1 cup ____________“And they gave him … two clusters of ____” (1 Sam. 30:12)

To start, beat the first four ingredients together. Next, mix in the remaining ingredients. Then, drop the cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Finally, bake at 350° F for about 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!

3/4 cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups sugar (I used 3/4 white and 3/4 brown)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda (this was the tricky one for the answer was leaven which is yeast. I figured that baking soda was the yeast for cookies, but possibly could have been baking powder?)
3 cups oats
1 cup raisins (since my family does not like
raisins we added chocolate chips).
VERDICT: It was a fun FHE. It helped me stress that just as we need to feed our bodies we need to feed our spirits also. The kids came up with reading the scriptures, praying, going to church and serving others. My husband added that not only do we need to read the scriptures but take them in, by really trying to understand what we are reading. Not just reading the words.
The cookies had good flavor. The family ate everyone of them. They were more cake like and were really dry. I don't know what I did wrong. If anyone has any suggestions please help me!!

  1. the soda might have given the cookies a cake-like taste to them, usually recipes have both soda and powder so try using 1/2 tsp of both


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear what you have to say!!
