Good morning and happy Friday!
For today’s post I wanted to share my heart-shaped apple cinnamon rolls with you! I made these last night for Peter as an early Valentines day treat, since hes going away for a week and wont be here on the actual day. I know chocolate is a Valentines day staple, but Peter doesn’t eat a lot of chocolate so I wanted to do something a little different this year. Instead I decided I would spruce up a regular cinnamon roll and make it into a mini cinnamon apple pie roll -two of Peters favorites, cinnamon rolls and apple pie….who am I kidding, I’m sure those two are everyones favorites!
These were super easy to make so its not much of a recipe post because everything I bought was pre-made. I’m posting this idea for anyone else who is looking for something easy, delicious, and different then the typical chocolate Valentines day desserts.
What you’ll need
– Pillsbury *Cinnabon* Flaky Supreme Cinnamon Roll Dough (makes 5 rolls and comes with icing)
-Apple pie filling
What To Do
-Unroll the cinnamon rolls and line the strips of dough with the apple’s from the pie filling
-Roll the dough back up in the shape of a heart
-Once rolled back up, I take a knife and add a layer of the apple jelly from the pie filling on top of each roll before putting in the oven
-bake at 350 for about 20 minutes – or until golden brown
-Remove from oven, let cool for 10 minutes (if you can!), drizzle with icing and enjoy 🙂
I mentioned on Instagram that these puppies got scarfed down immediately after baking. There was no “let cool for 10 minutes” waiting time for us, they smelt soo good, we couldn’t wait!
If anyone tries this idea let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful weekend.
