Recipe request again, vegan cinnamon rolls

Here you go Linda have fun making these and I hope you enjoy!

For the dough
1 packet dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tsp
1/2 cup warm water
3/4 cup non dairy milk at room temp (I use soy)
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon (I use Saigon cinnamon)
about 3 cups flour

For the filling
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup regular cane sugar
1 tbs ground cinnamon
1/4 cup melted margarine

For the frosting
1/4 cup vegan cream cheese 
1/4 cup margarine
1 tsp pure vanilla extract  
2 cups powdered sugar

Cream together the cream cheese and margarine and vanilla, then add the powdered sugar a little at a time and beat for about 5 minutes until fluffy. Place in refrigerator until your cinnamon rolls come out of the oven.

Preheat your oven to 375degrees  and grease an 11 by 13 inch rimmed baking pan.
In a large bowl combine yeast and 1 tsp sugar and warm water, let sit about ten minutes until foamy.
Add the rest of the sugar, milk, oil, salt, cinnamon and 2 cups of the flour, stir until most of the flour is incorporated then add the rest of the flour (and more if needed) to the dough by 1/2 cup fulls until you get a soft dough. 
Flour a cutting board and knead the dough for at least 5 minutes, until it's nice and smooth. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. Once dough has risen punch it down and then let it rest for 10 minutes, in the meantime prepare the filling by mixing together the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Lightly flour your cutting board again and roll the dough out in a 1/4 inch thick rectangle around 18 by 12 inches or so. 
With a pastry brush or your hand, spread the melted margarine over the dough and then sprinkle the filling mixture over the entire surface of the dough leaving about a 1/2 inch border at the end of one side. Now tightly roll the dough into a log and cut into 1 inch thick sections, place them in the greased baking dish about 1/2 inch apart put them in the oven for 18 to 22 minutes until light golden brown. While they are still nice and hot spread the frosting all over and enjoy! :)
