Disneyland's Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls

Blue Ribbon Bakery


1/2 c. warm water
2 packages yeast
2 T. sugar
1 (3 1/2 oz.) package instant vanilla pudding
2 c. milk
1/2 c. unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 t. salt
8 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. unsalted butter, melted
2 c. brown sugar
2 T. cinnamon


In small bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Set

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.

Roll dough on a very large floured surface. Dough should roll out to a long
rectangle, about 34 x 21 inches in size. Take the 1 cup of melted butter and
spread over entire dough surface, using a pastry brush.

In small bowl, mix together the 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. Take each roll into the
palm of your hand and gently pack the 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 degree oven until golden brown in
color, about 15-20 minutes. Frost rolls while still warm.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened (room temperature)
1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1 t. pure vanilla extract
3 c. powdered sugar
2 T. milk

In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Spread on the
very warm rolls.
