Here is a fun and easy recipe for the upcoming feast of St. Patrick. This recipe calls for Rhodes™ Anytime! Cinnamon rolls, but it could be made with your favorite homemade cinnamon rolls as well, though it might take just a little longer. :) For those with allergies, you can find a gluten-free cinnamon roll recipe in the archives. We have made smaller Shamrock Cinnamon Rolls in the past, but I love the look of this larger shamrock made with three heart shaped cinnamon rolls.
adapted from Rhodes Bread
Ingredients: (For each large 2 serving Shamrock)
- 4 Rhodes™ Anytime! Cinnamon rolls
- Cream Cheese Frosting (included with rolls)
- Green Sugar Sprinkles
Defrost the cinnamon rolls. To do so quickly, place one frozen roll at a time on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 12 seconds.
Unroll one half of the roll then start rolling the dough from the unrolled end to form a matching spiral. When each spiral looks the same, pinch the dough between the two spirals to make a point at the bottom. Repeat with two more rolls.
Cut off a piece from the last remaining roll to use for the stem. Arrange the 3 heart shaped rolls and the stem into a shamrock shape (use the leftover part of the last roll for additional shamrock stems).
Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Glaze with cream cheese frosting and sprinkle with green sugar sprinkles.
