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.

Bacon shaped into hearts

Bacon Hearts

Bacon shaped into hearts

We don’t go breakin’ hearts, we go bacon hearts! Add some TLC to this breakfast staple with these heart shaped bacon pieces. An easy and delicious way to show some love!

What you’ll need:

Bacon

Baking sheet

Toothpicks (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Choose a baking sheet with edges, or line it with aluminum foil to prevent the grease from leaking.

Cut your bacon slices into two halves. Use two of the cut pieces to shape them into a heart and place them on the baking sheet. If you prefer a thicker cut of bacon, fold the pieces in half long ways instead of cutting them and use those two pieces to shape a larger heart.

If you’re worried about them falling apart, use toothpicks to hold the pieces together as they cook.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or to your desired crispness.

Serve with love.
