For Family Home Evening we made scripture cookies. (or at least attempted – ha) I thought it was a rather clever idea. Jessica, mMy youngest daughter, doesn’t usually sit still for FHE but this time she did. (yay) We read the scriptures and tried to figure out the ingredients. Jessica was able to pour in the ingredients and turn the Kitchen Aid on and off. It was a great success….. until I realized I didn’t have oats! YIKES! No oats for oatmeal cookies… hmmm.. what should one do? I had the brilliant idea of using 4 packages of the single pack instant oats. It didn’t turn out as great as regular oats would have but the cookies were still surprisingly good and edible.
To find each ingredient, look up the scripture reference and fill in the blank. Some clues are subtle, so check the list of the ingredients on the bottom of the page before making each recipe.
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).

Little mini lesson…
Heavenly Father gives us a “recipe” for our lives through the scriptures, counsel from the leaders and prophet, our parents, etc. and if we follow it, we will be able to return to Him again.
