Make the Cinnamon Rolls:

  1. Place the water and vegan buttery spread in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. The water should be warm, but not too hot - about 110 degrees.

  2. Once the water is warm, add the sugar and the yeast packet. Let it sit for about 10 minutes so the yeast can activate - it will look a little foamy.

  3. Add the flour and stir gently until it forms a ball of dough. If it seems dry, add a little bit more water. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and set it in a warm place.

  4. Allow the dough to rise for 45-60 minutes. It should double in size.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the 3 tablespoons of vegan buttery spread.

  6. Sprinkle a little flour on a rolling pin and the rolling surface. Roll out the dough into a long rectangle.

  7. Pour the melted vegan buttery spread on the dough and smooth it out. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on it.

  8. Roll the dough up, starting from a long side. You should have a long log of dough. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 9 sections.

  9. Place the cinnamon rolls swirl side up, into an 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Make the Icing:

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the vegan buttery spread, powdered sugar, and non-dairy milk.

  2. Once the cinnamon rolls are done, allow them to cool for a little bit. Spread the icing on top before serving.
