It's February! The month of love! Make these puffy heart rolls for the one you love...it is SO easy!
I used my versatile Dinner Roll dough, but you can use any favorite bread dough of your choice.
After the dough has risen and it is ready for shaping, I divided the dough into 2 oz. portions.
Lay the side of your hand flat on the counter, near the blob of dough.
Cup your hand in a "C" shape around the dough.
Do not squeeze or touch the dough...
Move your hand in a circular motion*, keeping contact with the counter. You do not need to press on the dough. It will roll around in the "C" shape form you have created.
*Left handers: rotate clock-wise. Right handers: counter clock-wise.
A really, really, round ball of dough!
You may want to cover these with plastic wrap and keep them from drying out.
If the dough begins to stick to your counter, spray a little bit of cooking oil on it.
Transfer shaped roll to prepared baking sheet, spacing the rolls about 2 inches apart. Cover with plastic wrap. When rolls have risen double, bake as directed.
After baking, brush with melted butter, if desired. Beautiful, huh? I bet your sweetheart would be impressed.
