Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls – the cutest and best cinnamon rolls ever, made into heart-shape and stuffed with red cherries. So adorable.
In a saucepan over medium heat, add the milk and butter. Stir until melted & remove from heat.
In a mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cups flour, sugar, salt. Add the yeast and the milk mixture. Stir to combine well, then add the egg and mix well.
Using the dough hook attachment on your mixer, knead while slowly adding in 1 cup of flour until the dough forms a ball & pulls away from the edges of the bowl. You can also knead by hand.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350F.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle. Spread melted butter on top. Combine cinnamon and sugar, then sprinkle the mixture on top of the dough.
Cut the dough into 10 strips and make each strip into a heart shape. Transfer the cinnamon roll onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the rolls with a damp towel and allow to rise 25 minutes.
Place a cherry into each cinnamon roll. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until slightly golden. Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm.
