Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls

These are amazing. I think it's the pudding in them. Everyone I give them to loves them and wants the recipe. A special cinnamon roll for sure.


1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup milk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
4 cups bread flour
1 box (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon


4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup


Put the boiling water and milk in the bowl of your mixer with the bread hook attachment on. Add melted butter, sugar and yeast. Stir and let it sit for a few minutes. Add salt, egg and 1 c flour. Mix for about 30 seconds. Add the pudding and the rest of the flour. Mix on low for 1 minute, then on high for 1 minute to knead it.

Let it rise for 1 hour or until doubled. Roll it out. Top with filling (put the filling ingredients in a bowl and heat together for 10 seconds in the microwave. Then mix it together with your hand before spreading on the dough. You want it to be a paste consistency.), roll it up and slice it. Put it in a baking pan or two. Let it rise again for about 30 more mins. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Top with frosting. For the frosting just wisk all ingredients together.
