Vanilla Pudding Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting
From: My Kitchen Cafe
1/2 cup warm water
2 Tbs. active dry yeast
2 Tbs. sugar
1 (3.5 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. salt
6+ cups flour
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
2-3 Tbs. milk
In a small bowl, combine water, yeast and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Set aside.
In a large bowl, take pudding mix and prepare according to package directions. Add butter, eggs and salt. Mix well. Add pudding mixture to yeast mixture. Blend.
Gradually add flour; knead until smooth. Do not over flour! It should be very soft but not sticky. Place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled.
Then roll our on a floured surface to 34" x 21". Take 1 cup of soft butter and spread over the surface. In a bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top. Roll up very tightly. Using a serrated knife or thread (I always use dental floss, because that is what my mom did... lol.) cut ever 1 1/2". Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet 1" apart. Cover and let rise until double again.
Bake at 35o degrees for 15-20 minutes. remove when they start to turn golden brown. Frost warm rolls with the cream cheese frosting.
Combine butter and cream cheese; mix well. Add vanilla and sugar, mix again. Add milk until desired consistency.
