Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

There's no better joy than hot icing dripping off a cinnamon roll. Fall is around the corner and these will make your home smell so warm and toasty. I made a large batch and kept them in the fridge for a couple of days. The rolls reheated nicely and the icing kept its sweetness. Be sure to make a lot, because my husband and girls ate these all up!




Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups Unbleached all-purpose flour

2 tbsp Pure cane sugar

2 tsp Baking soda

1 tsp Salt

1 cup Nondairy half and half

1/4 cup Nondairy butter (melted)

2 tbsp Nondairy butter (softened)


Brown Sugar Mix

3/4 cup Dark brown sugar

1/4 cup Pure cane sugar

1 tbsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Vanilla

1/8 tsp Salt

3 tbsp Nondairy butter (softened)

1/2 cup Pecans (chopped)


Frosting

3 tbsp Nondairy butter (softened)

3 oz Nondairy cream cheese

1 cup Powdered Sugar

1/4 cup Nondairy milk

1 tsp Vanilla


Directions

  • Preheat oven 425F. Grease round 9" cake pan.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine half and half 1/4 of melted butter. Pour over the flour mix and combine to make a dough. You may need to use your hands to blend. (flour your hands; the dough won't stick as bad to your hands) Knead the dough and sprinkle in flour as needed if the dough is too sticky)

  • Lightly flour a clean surface, and roll out the dough into a large rectangle. Brush melted butter over dough.

  • Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over dough, and press it in lightly to the dough.

  • Take one end of the dough and roll to the opposite end.

  • Pinch the ends, so brown sugar mix does not fall out.

  • Cut the dough into equal sections (approximately 8)

  • Place each roll in the prepared cake pan. Start with one in the middle and place the rest of the rolls around it.

  • Spread melted butter over the top of the rolls, and bake in the oven on 425F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F and continue baking 5 to 10 minutes or until slightly brown.

  • Icing- Using a hand or stand mixer, beat butter and cream cheese until creamy. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk mix well.

  • Allow rolls to cool 5 minutes before adding icing.


Enjoy!
