Main Street Bakery (Magic Kingdom):
Cinnamon Rolls *makes 16 extra large cinnamon rolls
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 2 packets active dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding
- 2 cups milk
- 1 stick unsalted butter,
- melted 2 large eggs,
- beaten 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
Directions: In a small bowl, combine water, yeast and sugar. Stir well until dissolved. Set aside. In a separate large bowl, mix pudding and milk with a wire whisk. Add in 1 stick of melted butter, eggs and salt. Mix well then add in the yeast mixture. Gradually add in the flour, 1 cup at a time, and knead until smooth. Place in another large bowl that has been well-greased. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or clean, damp towel and let rise in a warm place until double in size. Punch down and let rise again. Roll dough out on a very large floured surface. Dough should roll out to a long rectangle, about 34 x 21 inches in size. Take the 2 sticks of melted butter and spread over entire surface, using a pastry brush. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over top of the buttered dough. Starting on the long end, roll up like a jelly roll. Using a serrated knife, measure dough every 2 inches and slice. Take each roll into the palm of your hand and gently pack the roll to keep it from coming apart during baking. Place each roll into a buttered baking pan and allow to rise again in a warm place for about 20 minutes. Bake in preheated oven at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and frost with cream cheese frosting (recipe below) while still warm. Yum!!
