Awesome bread machine cinnamon rolls

Cinnamon Rolls


¼ c. warm water

¼ c. butter, melted

½ (3.4 oz) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix

1 c. warm milk

1 egg (room temperature)

1 Tbsp. white sugar

½ tsp. salt

4 c. bread flour

1 (.25 oz) pkg. active dry yeast

¼ c. butter, softened

1 c. brown sugar

4 tsp. ground cinnamon

¾ c. chopped pecans

Frosting:

1 (4oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened

¼ c. butter, softened

1 c. confectioners sugar

½ tsp. vanilla extract

1 ½ tsp. milk

In the pan of your bread machine, combine water, melted butter, vanilla pudding, warm milk, egg, 1 Tbsp. sugar, salt, bread flour, and yeast. Set machine to Dough cycle; press Start. When Dough cycle has finished, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 17x10 inch rectangle. Spread with softened butter.

In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over dough. Roll up dough, beginning with the long side. Slice into 16 one inch slices and place in 9x13 inch buttered pan. Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 min. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 min. While rolls bake, make frosting. Remove rolls from oven and top with frosting.

I've make cinnamon rolls quite similar to these, but you actually prepare the vanilla pudding as directed on the packaging, then mix with your eggs, and salt and combine will all they dry ingredients. They are fabulous. I found the copycat recipe on a site, they compare them to CINNABON Cinnamon rolls. YUMMY!!!!
