Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Roll Biscuits Recipe
How to Make Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Roll Biscuits
FOR THE BISCUITS:
- self-rising flour
- heavy cream
FOR THE CINNAMON ROLL FILLING:
- brown sugar
- ground cinnamon
FOR THE ICING:
- confectioner’s sugar
- heavy cream
- vanilla extract
Prep. Preheat the oven to 475º F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make the dough. Make my two ingredient cream biscuit dough as the base. Pour the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll it into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle.
Add the cinnamon roll filling. Spread the butter onto the surface of the dough and then sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar.
Roll the dough. Roll one long edge of the dough toward the center of the rectangle. Then, roll the opposite long edge of the dough toward the center of the rectangle until it meets the other rolled dough.
Cut into hearts. Using a sharp knife or string, cut the biscuits into 1 ½ – 2-inch thick pieces. Place them onto a prepared baking sheet. I like to take another second or so and make sure that the point of the heart is apparent.
Bake. Place them into the preheated oven and bake them until they are cooked through and golden brown, about 12 minutes.
Make icing. While the cinnamon roll biscuits are baking, I mix together my icing so that once they come out of the oven, I am ready to drizzle each one before serving.
While you can skip adding the icing if you’d like, but oh my goodness, I certainly do recommend including it if you can!
Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions
To make ahead. Prepare and store under a cake dome or tightly covered with wrap on the counter for up to three days.
To freeze. Prepare and cool completely. Place into an airtight, freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight and serve. May be reheated or served at room temperature.
Here’s my Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Roll Biscuits recipe. I hope you love them as much as we do!
Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Roll Biscuits Recipe
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
Cinnamon Roll Filling:
- 3 tablespoons butter melted
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 1/4 cups heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 475ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set asid.
- Add the flour to a large mixing bowl. Slowly pour cream into the flour and stir together until just combined. Pour the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle.
For the filling
- Pour melted butter on top of biscuit dough. Spread to make sure it reaches the edges of the dough.
- Mix together cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on top of melted butter. Roll the dough, beginning at the long edge, to the center of the rectangle. Repeat from the other side for the two rolls of the dough to meet in the center. Cut dough into rolls about 1½ – 2 inches thick. Place slices onto parchment paper lined sheet pan and reinforce the shape of the heart, if needed. Place the pan into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Do not over bake.
For the icing
- As the cinnamon roll biscuits are baking, mix together the confectioner’s sugar, heavy cream and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Remove the biscuits from the oven and then drizzle the glaze over the top and serve.

Hoping that U have a pic Robyn of the rolling process . I am not clear on how the heart shape happens
You will begin on the longest edge of the rectangle and roll the dough to the center and then stop. Then, start with the opposite side of the rectangle and roll to the center until the dough rolls touch one another. I demonstrated how to make these this week on a tv segment and I’ve added the link in case you want to see the visual in the recording. [Today in Nashville]
I clicked on the link and I wasn’t able to pull up a video. Do you have an exact link to the video and not just their webpage?
Thank you 🙂
Karen, I don’t have a video for the Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Roll Biscuits. I do have one for the Cinnamon Rolls. The video will be shown at the bottom of the recipe on my site. Just click on the arrow in the middle of the picture of the pan of cinnamon rolls. The You Tube video should start playing for you on the page. You won’t need to go to another webpage. Hope this helps.
What a cute idea to shape them into a heart. I would have never thought of that!
Thanks so much, Chels! They are perfect for Valentine’s Day or to make any day a little more special! xo
Would love to try for the grandkids. But, White Lilly does not have organic flour. Since I only use organic and have no self rising how might I go about this. Love your recipes .
You can use the all-purpose flour that you have on hand and follow this post I’ve written on how to make your own self-rising flour. I hope you enjoy them! xo
Hello. I am wondering if you can freeze these either after baking or before baking? Without the icing. If not I may have to give a lot away. Thank you
You certainly can freeze some before baking. Just place them in a single layer and not touching on a sheet pan and into the freezer until they are frozen, about 30 minutes or so. Then, remove them from the sheet pan and place into a freezer safe container like freezer zip top bags or an airtight dish. You can freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to bake, just bake from frozen and add a few more minutes to the baking time. I hope you enjoy them!
I also read your post regularly and it looks are fabulous till now…i can’t wait make them..and i really love your idea as well…Thanks for sharing a beautiful recipe….!
Thanks, Samantha! I hope you love these biscuits.
Can you add raisins to this and make cinnamon raisin biscuits?
You could add the raisins, Gloria. Hope you enjoy!
Tried making these and they were so fast and simple! My only question is how large your rectangle is? Mine must have been too big because by the looks of it I ended up with a lot of swirls and in your photos(hard to see under the icing) but it looks like maybe one swirl… this made my rolls more round and less heart shaped no matter how much I tried to shape them. Also are you shaping the bottom of the heart to be pointed? Thank you 😊
Calvin, I’m glad you found these easy to make. There will be more than one swirl of the dough since you roll both edges to meet in the center to form the top of the heart. When you roll the dough to form the top of the heart, make sure there is a definite heart shape at the top and I do shape the bottom of the heart to be pointed. Some of these are more heart shaped than others.
I love your recipes. Thank you for sharing. Many are like our old home use what you have to make a great meal dishes.
I did see your no egg pudding for the 1st time today and I’m hoping to get the energy to make it. It will be a welcome change from the egg custard process, at least I hope
Thanks, Anita. Hope you enjoy!
