Heart Kolaches: Double Duty for St. Valentine and Sts. Cyril andMethodius

I had an idea to make a treat that would honor both St. Valentine, the infamous Roman martyr who performed marriages for Christians in secret, and the OTHER saints of the day, who always seem to get left behind. St. Cyril and St. Methodius were two Greek brothers who spent their life evangelizing and ministering to the Slavonic nations.  Kolache is pretty popular in that area, so I decided to attempt some heart shaped versions as a double duty snack. They didn't stay in their heart shape as much as I hoped, but it still worked out pretty well!  What's more, with only 2 ingredients, they are SUPER easy to make!

Frozen yeast-style dinner rolls
jelly or jam

Let your frozen rolls thaw and rise according to package directions.  Place them in a round pie dish, and create a well in the center with a spoon.  Add the jelly, and push down on the tops to make the rolls more heart-shaped.  Then cook according to package directions.

Thanks for reading!
