Cinnamon rolls

Cinnamon Rolls:
One of the things I have missed greatly since I have had to go GF is Cinnamon rolls.  I know they make some that you can buy.  However, they really don't have any good ones yet.  I do have the answer though.  When I was making Pizza crust using Bob’s Red Mill GF pizza crust mix I noticed a recipe for cinnamon rolls on it.  Ok next time.  Well next time came and it all I can say is that they may not be as fantastic as those that contain gluten but they are better than any Cinnamon roll I have had since I was told to gut gluten from my diet.  A cream cheese icing was used on these and it worked well.  However, for those with an allergy to milk, Try using an Almond milk icing using the eggs and milk can be replaced in this recipe for those than need it.  I promise that these have the ability to turn out fantastically. 

Almond milk icing:
3/4 c powdered sugar
1 Tbsp almond milk
1/4 tsp vanilla

Cream Cheese Icing:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix together

The Recipe as pulled from the package of the Red Mill Pizza crust 

This recipe is easy to prepare since it uses the Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix.
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs*
  • 1 Yeast Packet (from package)
  • 1 cup warm Water
  • 16 oz package GF Pizza crust mix (3-1/4 cups)
  • as needed white rice flour for dusting
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Step 2
Add 1 Tbsp of the sugar to the warm water. Sprinkle the yeast packet on top of water and let sit 5 minutes. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, making sure to blend in completely.
Step 3
Add the yeast mixture to the butter/egg mixture and blend. Add in the pizza crust mix; blend two minutes. Heavily dust a foot long sheet of wax paper with rice flour. Spread batter over the length of the wax paper, about 19 inches. Using warm water wet your hands and presses the batter outward to fill the sheet. Keep your hands wet. Once the batter evenly covers the wax paper, brush melted butter over the batter from edge to edge.
Step 1
Combine the cinnamon and sugar and then sprinkle mixture over the batter from edge to edge. Pick up the short end of the wax paper and begin carefully rolling the batter over itself like you would a jelly roll. Cut the roll into 1 1/2 inch pieces and gently place the disks into the 8 x 8 inch greased pan. It is okay to crowd them.
Step 2
Let the rolls rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Remove from oven, cool until the butter stops bubbling then flip out onto a plate. Make 8 cinnamon rolls.
*To replace the eggs, combine 2 Tbsp Flaxseed Meal with 6 Tbsp of water; mix and let stand 5 minutes.

*to replace milk please use almond milk or Soy milk
