Amy's Cinnamon Rolls
Cook (in the microwave) until thick:
1 (4oz) box vanilla pudding mix (the kind that requires cooking)
1 1/2 C milk
Add to hot pudding:
Dump the pudding mixture into mixing bowl (I use my Bosch, but you can mix by hand)and add:
2 t salt
1/2 C sugar
2 C flour (of 6 C total)
Mix until blended, then add:
3 T (or pkg.) dry yeast softened in 1/2 C warm (115 degree) water
Then add 4 more cups of flour and knead for about 5 minutes...dough will still be sticky and not totally "leave" the bowl...don't add more than 1/2 C more flour.
Put 2 T oil into another large mixing bowl and dump the dough in, rolling to coat with oil. Cover with a warm damp tea towel and let rise (about 1 to 1 1/2 hours).
To roll, I put oil on my counter and roll out into a long recgangle.
Melt and drizzle butter over dough (about 1/3 C)
Sprinkle with about 2 C brown sugar and 2-3 T cinnamon
Roll tightly and slice into rolls (I use dental floss). Place onto buttered pans and let rise again.
Bake at 350 about 15 - 20 minutes. If they seem to be browning too much before done, cover with a piece of foil.
While baking, prepare glaze:
1/2 C butter
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
enough powdered sugar to make a thick glaze (maybe 6 cups)
1 t Mapleine (or other flavoring...vanilla, rum, almond)
Spread on warm rolls.
