Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

To make the dough:

·        Mix 1 packet active dry yeast with 1/2 cup lukewarm water and 1 tsp sugar. Let this sit for a couple of minutes.
Add 1/3 cup sugar, 3/4 cup unsweetened cashew milk, 1/3 cup olive oil, 3/4 tsp salt, and 1 tsp cinnamon.
·        Mix in 2 cups of flour, and then continue to add flour by the 1/2 cup full until you have used about 3 and 1/2 cups.
·        Knead mixture to form a soft dough and then place in a dishcloth covered bowl for an hour so that the dough can rise. 

 For the filling, mix together:
·        1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup regular sugar, 1T cinnamon, and 2T flour.
·        Then stir in ¾ cups chopped walnuts and ½ cup raisins.


Once the dough has risen, place it on a lightly floured surface and punch it down. Let it sit for ten minutes and then roll it out into a 12 inch by 18 inch rectangular shape.

Sprinkle the filling evenly over the top, and then dot periodically with about 1/4 cup of margarine using your fingers.

Roll up the dough as tightly as possible lengthwise, then cut into 12 pieces and let rise in your lightly sprayed baking pan for 45 minutes or until the rolls have double in size.

Bake at 375 for 18-22 minutes, and ice with icing mixture (3/4 cup powdered sugar, 2 T vegan milk, and 1 tsp vanilla).
