Step-by-Step Directions

  1. Slice apart the nine pastry rolls following the pre-cut lines. For ease of cutting, let roll log thaw for 15-30 minutes.
  2. Carefully unroll about one half of the roll and then roll it back into itself. Just make sure you leave a little excess in the middle, so you can form the point of the heart. Pinch the bottom together to make the strong point. Ensure they are rolled tightly as they will spread as they bake.
  3. Allow rolls to rise at room temperature (72°F) for 6 to 8 hours.
  4. Bake in pre-heated oven at 325°F (350°F for high altitudes) for 21 to 25 minutes or until slightly brown.
  5. You may ice the rolls while slightly warm or wait until they cool completely.
  6. Decorate with sprinkles and enjoy your Heart Cinnamon Pastry Rolls!
