      Delicious. The addition of the pudding produced a moister cinnamon roll than my usual, and I think I'll use this recipe from now on, instead of my old one. The directions are well written, and easy to follow. The frosting recipe made more than I needed, but I can always use extra frosting somewhere else! Thanks for posting this recipe, brkfstcook.

      Made these yesterday. Good overall recipe with one exception. The recipe says to put the rolls on cookie sheets. DON'T DO IT!! Put them in a cake pan with sides. The brown sugar,apple and cinnamon mixture liquifies and runs out of the cookie sheet making a nasty burned on oven mess. Also, the buns flatten out and look more like honeybuns. Taste good, tho.
