Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pint of salt

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

  2. Beat the egg with milk, vanilla, salt, and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar, set aside.
  4. In a pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter at a time, using additional butter as needed.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  6. Dip each heart in egg mixture to coat both sides. Shake off excess egg mixture.
