How to Make Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls

You’ll need the following ingredients to make heart cinnamon rolls:

  • Pizza dough: I used Pillsbury’s regular refrigerated pizza crust, although you can also make homemade pizza dough if you wish.
  • Cinnamon sugar: You can either use storebought cinnamon sugar or combine granulated sugar with ground cinnamon yourself.
  • Dipping sauce (optional): It’s fun to dip these in maple syrup or caramel sauce, especially when you’re entertaining.

Making Cinnamon Roll Hearts is easy

To make them, you’ll need to unroll the dough into a large rectangle on a floured work surface. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly across the top. Then roll it up the long edge halfway, and repeat from the other long edge. The two rolls will now be touching.

The last step for preparation is to slice widthwise into 1-inch wide pieces using a sharp knife. You should get at least 16 heart shaped cinnamon rolls:

Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes until they’re golden and puffy. Once they’ve cooled in the pan for 10 minutes, they’re ready to serve.
