Tastes Like Cinnabon Rolls (Can be made free of milk, soy, egg, peanut, tree nuts. Contains wheat.) 




1 cup rice milk
1/3 cup margarine, melted
4 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp oil
4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 tsp yeast
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
1/3 cup melted margarine
1 1/2 cup confectioners (powdered) sugar
1/4 cup Tofutti® Better Than Cream Cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
7 Tbsp margarine




Place first 9 ingredients in order into the bread machine and put on the dough setting until completed. 

Roll the dough out with a rolling pin to be 21" x 16" and spread the melted margarine over the surface of the dough with a brush. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together and spread on top of the margarine. Then roll the dough up from long-side to short to look like a swirl and pinch the ends of it. Cut the dough into pieces to make your cinnamon rolls as large as you want (average 1"). Sometimes we roll the dough out to be a lot shorter in width and make mini buns instead of big ones. 

Grease your baking ban and place the rolls on it. Let them rise in a warm place uncovered from 30 minutes or until they have risen. 

Bake at 400 °F for 10 minutes. 

In a mixer or with a hand held mixer place topping ingredients together and mix until it looks creamy. Spread on rolls after they have been baked. 

Serve hot.
