1 apple, peeled and thinly sliced (be sure to save the peel for the Apple Filling)

Pour soy milk in a small bowl and warm in the microwave for 10 seconds. After test the milk to make sure it’s not too warm. I usually put my finger in the milk – it should be slightly warmer than my finger. If it feels hot, then it needs to sit and cool for a bit. Then add the yeast. Stir for a bit and then allow the yeast to proof in the warm milk until foamy.
In a large bowl combine proofed yeast with sugar, Vegan Butter, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine ground flaxseed, 2 cups of flour, corn starch, baking powder, baking soda and salt to create the flour mix. Gradually add flour mix into wet ingredients and stir until you have a sticky dough.
Place the dough on a well-floured surface, sprinkle with flour and knead for 5 minutes or so. If the dough becomes sticky again sprinkle with more flour.
You’ll know your dough is ready when you press your thumb in the middle leaving an impression and the dough rises back up to fill the void. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, spray the top with cooking spray, cover with a moist tea towel and set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes to an hour so the dough can double in size.
After the dough has doubled in size, punch it down. Pour it out onto your well-floured surface, sprinkle with a little more flour and use a rolling pin to flatten it out. Your goal is to shape the dough into a rectangle about 12″ x 16″.
Spread the apple pie filling in an even layer across the top of the dough. Top that with the thin slices of apple.
Now it’s time for the fun part, rolling the dough until it forms a sort of cinnamon roll log. You’re going to roll the long side of the rectangle so begin with the part that is closes to you and roll the dough one section at a time. Keep rolling the dough tightly as possible until you reach the end. Pinch the ends of the dough to try to hold all the goodies inside.
Using a serrated knife, slice the rolls about 1 1/2″ thick and carefully place them into a greased cake pan. Leave about an inch between each roll. Cover loosely with that moist cloth from step 5 and walk away. While you’re waiting you could go ahead and get that oven warmed up to 350° F.
Once the rolls have risen, bake them for about 30 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when you look in and see a nice golden edge (see photos above).
