  • 1 1/4 oz. active dry yeast
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • ¼ cup Luke-Warm water – about 110 degrees
  • 1 cup milk 2% or whole
  • cup vanilla pudding mix instant
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup butter melted – unsalted
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3-3&1/2 cups all purpose flour


  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter melted – unsalted


  • 1&1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • ½ cup butter softened unsalted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. water


  • Using a large bowl, completely dissolve the yeast in the water
  • In a separate, smaller bowl, mix the milk and pudding together for 1 minute and let stand for one more minute, or until it has thickened up
  • Now, add the egg, melted butter, salt, and 2 cups of the flour
  • Mix all of that together until it’s smooth, then add more of the flour until it’s a soft dough
  • Using a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for about 5 minutes until it is nice and smooth
  • Grease a large bowl – I dipped a paper towel in some butter and rubbed it around the bowl
  • Place the dough into the bowl, and flip it around so the top has grease on it
  • Let that rise, covered, in a warm place for about 1 hour – or until it has doubled
  • Mix the cinnamon and sugar together
  • Place a piece of wax paper on a rolling surface, and spread a little flour out
  • Punch the dough down, and place it onto the floured surface
  • Spread the dough out and sprinkle some more flour on top
  • Place another sheet of wax paper on top of that
  • Roll the dough between the wax papers until it’s about 9″x12″
  • Pull the top sheet of wax paper off
  • Spread the 1/4 cup of melted butter over the dough
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top
  • Roll the dough up like a jelly roll – starting on a long side
  • Pinch ends together
  • Cut the roll into 12 slices
  • Place the sliced pieces into a greased 9x13in. pan
  • Cover and let rise for another 45 minutes – more waiting
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes
  • Mix all of the frosting ingredients together in a small bowl
  • Spread over the warm rolls
