Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Rolls

Lovin' from the Oven

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!

Hi, Wendy - I saw your post on Sandy's blog. I was wondering if you'd mine sharing your pizza rolls recipe?

BTW, I love these heart-shaped cinnamon rolls. I might just have to make some!

Blessings,
Elizabeth
