How to Make Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Roll Biscuits Recipe

To make them, I begin by making my two ingredient cream biscuit dough as the base. Yes, you read that correctly, two ingredients – just self-rising flour and heavy whipping cream.

The flour and the whipping cream come together to make a flaky and absolute melt in your mouth biscuit that is perfect for these heart-shaped cinnamon roll biscuits, too!

Once you have your cream biscuit dough mixed together, you turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. You then spread melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon on top of the rolled dough.

Next, you begin by rolling one long edge of the dough toward the center of the rectangle. Then, you roll the opposite long edge of the dough toward the center of the rectangle until it meets the other rolled dough. Using a sharp knife or string, cut the biscuits into 1 1/2 – 2-inch thick pieces. Place them onto a prepared baking sheet.

Then, I like to take another second or so and make sure that the point of the heart is apparent. Next, I pop them into the preheated oven and bake them until they are cooked through and golden brown, about 12 minutes.

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!

Ingredients

Biscuits:

Cinnamon Roll Filling:

  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Icing:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 475ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray 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.

  1. Hoping that U have a pic Robyn of the rolling process . I am not clear on how the heart shape happens

    • Hi Karina,
      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]

  2. What a cute idea to shape them into a heart. I would have never thought of that!

  3. 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 .

  4. 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!
