Vanilla Pudding Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

I think that the pictures say how amazing these are.
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
2 eggs
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.

Mmmm....we made these over the weekend and they were so good! I made a mistake and left out the butter in the dough, but they were still fantastic. Thanks for sharing!
