Walt Disney World’s Main Street Bakery Cinnamon Rolls (disneyfoodblog)

Cinnamon Rolls

1/2 c warm water
2 pkgs yeast
2 T sugar
1 3 1/2 oz pkg instant vanilla pudding
2 c milk
1 1/2 c unsalted butter, melted, divided
2 large eggs, beaten
1 t salt
8 c flour
2 c brown sugar
2 T cinnamon

In small bowl, combine water, yeast and sugar. Stir until dissolved and set aside.up  In large bowl, mix pudding according to package instructions with milk. Add 1/2 c melted butter, egg and salt. Mix well, then add yeast mix 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″ in size. Take the 1 c melted butter and use a pastry brush to spread over entire dough surface. 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″ 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 min. Bake in a preheated 350 F oven until golden brown in color, about 15 – 20 min. Frost rolls while still warm. Yield: 16 – 18 rolls. Note: If you want to have these ready even faster on a given morning, simply start a day ahead of time. Make the dough the morning before, refrigerate it for 8 – 10 hours, take out and follow the directions to shape and place on the baking sheet. Cover the shaped rolls with greased plastic wrap and refrigerate until the next morning. Take out in time to come to room temp and rise and then bake as directed. For the jam, use jam that has strawberries as the first ingredient (instead of sugar or corn syrup) so that delicious fruit taste will really shine through.
