Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Whisk together the almond milk, melted butter, and sugar from the dough ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Sprinkle the yeast into the milk mixture and allow it to bloom for 5 minutes. 
  3. Add kosher salt and 2¼-cups of flour into the milk and yeast mixture, then mix until well combined. 
  4. Cover the bowl with a towel or plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
  5. Uncover and knead ½-cup all purpose flour into the risen dough. Continue kneading until it just loses its stickiness. You may need to add additional flour. 
  6. Roll the dough out into a large rectangle, about ½-inch thick. Fix the corners to make sure they are sharp and even.
  7. Spread the softened vegan butter from the filling ingredients over the dough and sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  8. Roll up the dough, forming a log, and pinch the seam closed. Place seam-side down. Trim off any unevenness on either end.
  9. Cut the log in half, then divide each half into 8 evenly sized pieces, about 1½-inches thick each.
  10. Line the food tray with parchment paper, then place the cinnamon rolls on the tray. 
  11. Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
  12. Select the Preheat function on the Cosori Smart Air Fryer Toaster Oven, adjust temperature to 375°F, and press Start/Pause
  13. Whisk together egg wash ingredients and lightly brush the wash on the tops of the cinnamon rolls.
  14. Insert the food tray with the cinnamon rolls at mid position in the preheated oven. 
  15. Select the Bake function, adjust time to 18 minutes, and press Start/Pause.
  16. Remove when done.
  17. Whisk together almond milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract from the glaze ingredients to make the icing, brush it all over the cinnamon rolls, then sprinkle the rolls with Swedish pearl sugar.
