SERVINGS: Makes 9 rolls.

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

Dough:

3 tablespoons plant-based butter

1 cup plant-based milk

2 ¼ tsp instant yeast

1 ½  tablespoons sugar

Pinch of salt

3 cups of flour

1 tablespoon of oil

1 neat egg prepared according to package instructions

 

Cinnamon Filling:

5 tablespoons plant-based butter

⅓ cup sugar

1 ½ tablespoons cinnamon

 

Additional 3 tablespoons plant-based butter (melted) for brushing.

 

Plant-based cream cheese icing:

½ cup plant-based butter, softened

6 ounces plant-based cream cheese

3-4 cups powdered sugar

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Heat the vegan butter and milk in a microwave safe bowl, heat gradually, a few seconds at a time, until the temperature reaches 110 degrees (measure with a kitchen thermometer).  When the temperature is correct, add the yeast.  Let sit for 10 minutes.  In a stand mixer, using the kneading attachment, add the yeast/butter mixture and then add the sugar, salt, and neategg and gradually add the flour until a slightly sticky ball forms.  Oil a large bowl and place the ball of dough in the bowl to rise, covered, for 1 ½  hours.  

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. On a floured surface, roll the dough into a rectangle, the dough should be about ¼” thick.  Spread the cinnamon filling evenly across the rectangle. Starting at the bottom of the long side of the rectangle, roll the dough to the top of the rectangle.  Cut into 9 even cross sections, forming the rolls.  Place the rolls in a greased 8 x8 baking dish.  Brush with the remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter.  Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden on the top.

 

Prepare the icing:  Whip together the butter, cream cheese, and 3 cups of the powdered sugar.  Add more powdered sugar if necessary to get the icing to a thick yet spreadable consistency.  Once the rolls have cooled for 5 minutes, spoon the icing on top of each roll, allowing it to melt down each one.  Serve up the cinnamon rolls while they’re still fresh from the oven!
