DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the water. Set aside.
  • Scald the milk over medium-high heat. Pour the heated milk into a large bowl, add the butter, and wait until the butter has melted.
  • Add the sugar and salt, then stir to dissolve.
  • Mix in the instant pudding and 1 1/2 cups of the flour.
  • Add the yeast mixture and eggs and beat well.
  • Stir in the remaining flour, cup by cup, until well blended.
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board and knead for 5 to 8 minutes, until it springs back when touched.
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 3 hours.
  • Once the dough has risen, punch it down and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll out the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle.
  • Smear with butter.
  • Blend the sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle them over the dough. Wait 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Tightly roll up the dough lengthwise. Cut the roll into 1-inch pieces and place them cut-side up on slightly greased baking sheets, leaving a few inches between rolls.
  • Let rolls rise until double in size (1 to 1 1/2 hours).
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bake rolls for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden.
  • After removing them from the oven, brush them with 1/4 cup of melted butter.
  • Once they've cooled, dribble with a thin icing (optional).
