It's Valentine's Day this weekend, and we started off the week with Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls.
Nothin' says I ♥ you like a cinnamon rolls baking in the oven! These are so easy; just follow your own cinnamon roll recipe -- with one little change. Roll the dough from both ends, toward each other, and then pinch the bottom.
Gourmet Mom on the Go gets all the credit; what a cute idea! Go here for a recipe and a how-to that even includes a little video tutorial. Here's my little contribution: I'll give you a light version of the cream cheese frosting to put on top. Enjoy. ♥
Light Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz. light cream cheese (Neufchâtel cheese)
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put all ingredients into a bowl. Beat on low speed with an electric mixer until just combined, then increase speed to high and beat until smooth.
♥ If you want the breadmaker cinnamon roll recipe we used at our house, leave me a comment, and I'll get it to you!
