HEART SHAPED BUTTER ROLLS

Photobucket

What was your favorite bakes on Valentine's Day? There were breakfast, bread, cookies, bars, cupcakes, tarts, pies and candy all over the places to celebrate this occasion. In this case. I've turned this butter rolls into heart shape using sweet bread dough. Used ready made red bean paste for the filling since this is special request from my son. Other stuffing such as chocolate spread, strawberry or even kaya (egg jam) works well too.  They are wonderful for everyday or for special holiday dinner. You can  make the dough ahead of time and bake the rolls just before the dinner is ready. It uses straight forward method,  easy to prepare and  add a special touch to any meal.

For shaping, roll out each ball into oval shape, spread the filling then fold into 2, again into quarter. With sharp knife, slit the center of  folded roll half way through, spread open to get heart shape. It was time consuming but had so much fun shaping them for the very first time. These are fantastic rolls,  light buttery taste and so soft.

That's so cute to make heart shaped bread. I think I would have a hard time with that. I'm still pretty new to yeasted bread making so I have a hard time with shaping bread. It usually turns out very free form!
