Heart Shaped Rolls

Show the ones you love just how much you love them with hot and fluffy heart shaped rolls. These simple rolls can be made on a Sunday afternoon or in a morning to enjoy all week long.

Ingredients:

2/3 cup heavy cream

1 cup milk

1 large egg

1/3 cup sugar

4 cups flour

1 tbsp active dry yeast

1 1/2 tbs salt

4 tbs butter, melted

Instructions:

In a sauce pan, combine the milk and cream and bring to 115 degrees. Once it hits the desired temperature, pour into mixer bowl and add egg, sugar, flour, yeast and salt in that order. Mix with a dough hook on low for 3 minutes and then speed up to medium-high for 10 more minutes until the dough is slapping against the sides of the bowl and less sticky.

Once you have mixed for 13-15 minutes, flour bowl and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size. Once it has doubled in size, place back in mixer with dough hook and mix for 5 more minutes. Flour a smooth surface and split your dough into 16 equal parts. Roll the dough into a snake shape and then form into a heart. Place shaped dough on a lightly greased baking dish, cover lightly with plastic wrap, and let rise for 1.5 hours.

Once the rolls have gone through their second rising, heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 22 minutes until golden brown. Top with melted butter and enjoy.
