Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls!

Wow, these are amazing. Don't make these if you are on a diet. Just make them and don't count how many sticks of butter it calls for.

1/2 c warm water
2 packs dry yeast
2 TB sugar
3 1/2 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 c butter, melted
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
6 c flour

Combine water, yeast, & sugar. Stir until dissolved; set aside. In a large bowl prepare puding according to the box directions. Add butter, eggs, and salt to pudding. Mix well. Add yeast mixture: blend together. Gradually add flour and knead until smooth. Place in greased bowl; let rise until doubled. Punch down; rise again. Roll out on floured board (34" x 21"). Spread on 1 cup softened butter (I only did 3/4 cup). Combine 2 c brown sugar & 4 tsp cinnamon. Sprinkle over butter. Roll tightly and cut about 1 1/2" slices. Place about 2" apart on greased cookie sheet. Lightly press down. Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 20 large rolls. Frost while still warm.

Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz cream cheese, soft
1/2 c butter, soft
1 tsp vanilla
3 c powdered sugar
1 TB milk
Beat until smooth.

Enjoy. Seriously these are heaven.

These look delicious. I am going to have to wait until Valentine's Day to make them though. We are off sugar and only get one day a month to eat it. It will have to be Valentine's Day breakfast. Yum. Nice picture.

VERY GOOD! Best cinnamon rolls I've made. Mine took forever to raise, but worth the wait.
