For Christians of all faiths the Christening is a celebration of the removal of original sin. Different denominations celebrate this christening ceremony at different times in the lives of its parishioners. Some babies are christened soon after their birth, while other sects wait for the parishioner to reach a certain age to commit their life to Christ. Whether this christening ceremony or sacrament is for the young or old, make sure to honor the recipient by throwing a christening party for the whole family to enjoy.
After the christening meet the family members at a house or church basement. Serve a fun themed menu appropriate for the religious. Rack of Lamb of God, Holy Rolls, Holy Communion Corn on the Cob and Divine Dessert are cheeky titles yet presented in the most reverent of ways.
To make Holy Rolls acquire one loaf of frozen bread dough, 2 tbsp. melted butter, divided, finely minced garlic or small amount of garlic powder, optional, 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese, divided, and 3/4 teaspoon dried leaf basil, crumbled, or use mixed Italian herbs or rosemary. Next brush frozen bread loaf with 1 tablespoon butter. Cover with a clean cloth and thaw at room temperature 2 or 3 hours, or thaw in refrigerator for 6 to 10 hours. Sprinkle loaf with 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese; knead until well blended. Cut dough into thirds. On lightly floured surface roll each third in a 25 inch rope. Braid ropes together. Invert a custard cup or small jar on greased baking sheet; grease cup or jar. Shape braid into wreath around cup or jar; pinch ends together to seal. At this point, if desired, add a small amount of finely minced garlic or a little garlic powder to the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Brush with remaining 1 tablespoon butter; sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon cheese and the basil. Let rise in warm draft free place (I turn the oven on warm then turn it off and let it rise in there) 35 to 45 minutes until doubled. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 20 minutes or until golden and done. Remove to rack to cool. This recipe makes 1 bread wreath, about 16 slices.
