  • Gluten free pie dough, chilled (get the recipe or buy online)
  • Gluten free flour (for dusting)
  • Earth Balance Soy-Free (or butter, if dairy is allowed)
  • Pure Cane Sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Cover a clean baking sheet with parchment
  3. Roll the chilled gluten free pie dough into a large ball.
  4. Roll the dough flat on to a floured flat until it is about ⅜ inch thick. Shape it approximately to a rectangle.
  5. Spread softened Earth Balance (or butter) evenly on the surface of the dough.
  6. Sprinkle sugar all over top. Use as much or as little as you prefer. Cover with a light dusting of cinnamon.
  7. Add raisins and/ or nuts, if desired.
  8. Starting from the longer side, roll up the dough to form a log.
  9. Slice the log into portions about ½ inch thick.
