You’ve heard me talk about how mornings around this house are crazy and rushed. I’d venture to say that a lot of households these days are experiencing the same things in the mornings. Or, maybe this is what I tell myself every morning in order to feel better. Either way, we do not usually indulge in a luxurious breakfast on the weekdays. However, the weekends are my favorite because breakfast really is my favorite meal of the day.
Weekends are usually meant for planning fun adventures, sleeping in and cooking up some bacon. Along with that bacon we have another love… cinnamon rolls! Now, we don’t serve up just any cinnamon rolls on the weekends, I love using the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls. I’m sure you have seen my post about how to make 30 second cinnamon rolls? Wait, you haven’t? Then you have to go check it out! I use Pillsbury for those as well.
On certain special weekends, I love to buy the Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls. They take after their name and bake up very large. However, I take it a step further and turn them into hearts! The boys really enjoy the shape and I tend to think they bake up a little softer. I also only bake them for about 13 minutes instead of the suggested time of 16-20 minutes. We like our cinnamon rolls to be super soft and maybe just a little gooey.
HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE CINNAMON ROLL HEARTS
Want to make these cute hearts for yourself? All you have to do is take each individual roll and unroll it halfway. Keep the one side rolled. Take your flattened out side and tight roll it towards the other roll. Once they meet in the middle you simply take your fingers and pinch the end in order to form the tip of the heart. Like I said before, we bake them on a cookie sheet for less than the suggested time (only about 13 minutes). I put the icing on immediately after in order to get the full roll covered because we all love the icing!
Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls are available nationwide in major grocery and retail stores. For more information, visit www.pillsbury.com/weekendbreakfast, www.Facebook.com/Pillsbury and @Pillsbury on Instagram and Twitter
