Della Terra All Natural Butter Olive Oil is used as a butter substitute for a healthier alternative to the saturated fats found in butter. It's a fantastic option for vegans/vegetarians or anyone with dairy sensitivities. 

  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 packages rapid rise yeast
  • 2 cups warm water
  • Della Terra Butter Olive Oil, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1 cup brown sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. In a large bowl mix the water, sugar, ¼ cup Della Terra Butter Olive Oil, salt, and egg. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes. Place in well-greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

When doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread 2 tablespoons Della Terra Butter Olive Oil all over dough. Mix ½ of brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over "buttered" dough. Sprinkle with walnuts and or raisins, if desired. Beginning at the 15-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF

Coat the bottom of baking pan with 1/3 cup Della Terra Butter Olive Oil and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 of brown sugar. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
