Follow these simple steps:
You need one tube of Crescent Rolls. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray that with non-stick cooking spray. This way, you can lift the heart and move it to a platter for serving.
Roll out the crescent dough and gently press the perforations together, forming a single pastry sheet with sealed cuts.
Soften about 3 T of butter and spread gently over the crescent roll dough.
Evenly sprinkle about 1/3 c. brown sugar over the buttered dough. Over that, sprinkle cinnamon evenly over all of the sugar.
Carefully roll up the dough from the long side, tucking in the filling as you go and gently pinching a little at the end, to seal the roll.
Using a sharp serrated knife, cut the roll into 15 pieces. Arrange them on the foil covered baking sheet in the order shown. (1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 4 - 1/2s)
I put a half of a roll on the top of each side, just to round off the heart.
Bake at 375 for about 12 - 14 minutes. Don't let it over brown. Cool on the pan for just a couple of minutes, and then ice.
1 T of soft butter
1/2 c. + 1 T. confectioners sugar
about 1 T. of milk (don't want it to be too runny)
Add a little red food coloring or red sprinkles
Ice the rolls and then carefully trim away the excess foil from the heart shape. Voila! Amour. :)
Serve this for Valentine's Day for someone you love. It's so quick and easy, but really rich and sweet. I suggest making a pot of coffee or tea before it's ready. :)
And speaking of coffee ... I'm looking forward to my next of the 7 Days in a Cafe!
