Cinnamon Rolls

1/2 cup warm water
2 packages yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1 (3 1/2 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding
2 cups milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
8 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon

In small bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar; stir until dissolved and set aside.

In large bowl, mix pudding according to package instructions with milk. To this add 1/2 cup melted butter, egg and salt. Mix well, then add yeast mixture and blend well. Gradually add flour and knead until smooth. Place in a very large greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size.

Punch down and let rise again for second time. Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Roll dough on a very large floured surface. Dough should roll out to a long rectangle, about 34 x 21 inches in size. Spread melted butter over entire dough surface, using a pastry brush.

In small bowl, mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over top of buttered dough. Roll dough up like a jelly roll. Measure dough every 2 inches and cut with a knife.

Using your hands, gently pack each roll (this keeps it from coming apart during baking). Place each roll in a buttered baking pan and allow to rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes. Bake in a preheated 350 oven until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Frost rolls while still warm.
