Orange Rolls With Toasted Pecans

5.0 (1 reviews)

For the Dough:
4 cups flour
1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. vegan margarine
Egg replacer equivalent to 3 eggs

• In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of the flour with the yeast. Set aside.
• In a saucepan, heat the soy milk, sugar, and margarine over medium-low heat until the margarine is melted.
• Combine with the flour mixture and add the egg replacer. Beat for 2 minutes on low speed and then for 3 minutes on high. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough.
• Knead slightly. (It’s sticky and hard to knead, but give it a couple of minutes and the dough will become elastic.)
• Let rise in oiled bowl for 1 1/2 hours. Punch the dough down, divide in half, and let rest for 10 minutes.

For the Filling:
6 Tbsp. vegan margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup toasted pecans
Zest from 1 orange

For the Frosting:
1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1-3 Tbsp. orange juice
1 tsp. vegan margarine

• While the dough is resting, combine all the ingredients for the filling.
• In a separate bowl, combine all the frosting ingredients until smooth.

To Assemble:
• Roll each dough 1/2 into a 12- x 18-inch rectangle and spread with the filling. Roll up and cut into 12 pieces. Place cut-side down in a baking dish, about a 1/2 inch apart. Let rise for 1 1/2 hours.
• Bake at 375°F for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool.
• Pour the frosting on top of the rolls.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
