sweetener, and 1 1/2 c flour to batter and mix at low speed, for another 4

resilient dough. Shape the dough into a ball and place in a bowl that has
been well greased with margarine. Turn the ball over to coat the top with
margarine. Cover with a cloth and set in a warm place until doubled in
volume. Turn dough onto a lightly floured working surface and knead lightly.

it with margarine. Cover with a cloth and set in a warm place until doubled
in volume. Use 1 1/2 tsp margarine to grease the sides and bottom of a 9 by
13 cake pan. Set aside for later use. Turn dough onto a lightly floured
working surface. knead lightly and form into a ball. Cover with a cloth and
let rest 10 min. Roll dough out to form a 9 by 16 inch rectangle. Spread the
softened 1 1/2 tbsp of margarine evenly over the dough. Sprinkle evenly with
the brown sugar substitute and cinnamon mixture. Roll into a long roll like
a jelly roll and cut into 24 equal slices. Place the slices, cut side down,
in the cake pan, spacing them evenly. Cover with a cloth an let rise until
double in volume. Bake at 375 F for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Turn rolls out of the pan onto a wire rack and serve warm, if possible.
