Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

I got this recipe while I was in college and when John and I got married I made them for him. As a former employee of Cinnabon he can vouch for the fact that the filling and frosting are the real deal but the bread use to come premade. If its not the exact recipe it sure is close!

½ c warm water
2 eggs
2 pkgs yeast
2Tbsp sugar
3 ½ oz instant vanilla pudding
1 tsp salt
½ c melted butter
6 c flour

Mix water yeast, and sugar and let proof for 5 minutes. Mix pudding according to directions and add butter, eggs, salt, sugar, and mix well. Add to yeast mixture and blend, gradually adding flour and knead until smooth. Place in a large greased bowl and let rise for an hour. Punch down and roll out onto a floured surface. Mix filling and spread over the top evenly. Roll up tight and cut into 2-inch intervals. Place on greased cookie sheet and let rise again until doubled (or put in refrigerator and let sit overnight). Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or golden brown. Frost.

1 c butter
2 c brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon

8 oz cream cheese
½ c butter
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 c powdered sugar
