Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients
DOUGH
  1. 1 quart milk
  2. 1 cup vegetable oil
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 4 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast (or 2 packages)
  5. 8 1/2 cups gluten free flour blend (we use Auntie's)
  6. 1 teaspoon baking powder (heaping)
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda (scant)
  8. 1 tablespoon salt

FILLING
  1. 1 1/2 cup melted butter
  2. 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
  3. 2 cups sugar

ICING
  1. 8oz cream cheese (softened)
  2. 1 cup milk
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  4. 2lb powdered sugar

Directions
Rolls
  • For the dough, heat milk, vegetable oil and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until the mixture is warm and frothy. (Make sure not to let it boil.) Set aside and let cool to lukewarm.
  • Sprinkle yeast on top of the lukewarm mixture and allow to sit for 1 minute. Add 8 cups of the flour and mix until just combined. Set aside and let rise for 1 hour.
  • After the dough has risen, add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and remaining 1/2 cup of flour and stir until just combined. (At this point you can store the dough in the fridge for up to three days before proceeding)
  • Split the dough in half and place the first half on a well-floured surface (enough flour is key, so don't be afraid of using too much!). Roll the dough into a large rectangle, about 24 x 10 inches. Be careful not to roll the dough too thin or it will tear when you try to roll it. I try to roll mine about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Pour about 3/4 of a cup melted butter onto the dough and spread evenly with your fingers. Sprinkle 1 cup of the sugar and 1/8 cup of cinnamon over though evenly.
  • Starting at the end farthest from you, roll the dough toward you. Make sure to go slow and to roll as tight as you can. Cut this "log" into 1 1/2 inch slices, and place each slice in a baking pan that has been greased with melted butter. Repeat this process with the other half of the dough.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F and allow the rolls to rise for at least 20 more minutes. Bake for 13-15 minutes. The rolls will be just barely golden brown on the top when ready.
