For you semi-homemade devotees -- have you tried this recipe?

What you need --
Rhodes frozen Cinnamon Rolls (12 to a package)
 4-serving box of Cook and Serve Vanilla Pudding
Stick of butter (1/2 cup), melted
Chopped walnuts (optional)
 The night before, spray a 9"x13" pan with cooking spray.  Lay the frozen cinnamon rolls in a single layer in the pan.  (Reserve the icing packages that come with the rolls.)  Sprinkle the unprepared pudding mix over the frozen rolls.  Pour the butter over the rolls.  Sprinkle on nuts, if desired.
Cover pan with lightly sprayed plastic wrap.  Refrigerate over night.

Remove thawed rolls from refrigerator and place on counter for an hour or so until doubled in volume.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Spread with reserved icing.
I made these for our fellowship hour at church; and then for my Wednesday morning coffee group.  These coffee-break connoisseurs wanted seconds and the recipe!
In my current stage of old-age laziness, I may never make cinnamon rolls from scratch again.

Hi Sally,

They sure look delish, especially with that blue striped towel! Unfortunately, we do not have access to Rhodes. (sigh)

Isn’t it fun finding blue?

Happy Blue Monday!

Hello are you saying to use 4 boxes of pudding mix. Thank you

Tami said...

How many boxes of pudding did you use. Tami

Annie said...

why do they look like they have been rolled up?

Try Butterscotch instant pudding for a variation.
Also, layer nuts in the bottom first, then the rolls, then melted butter, then the pudding mix with about 3 tbls of brown sugar and a bit more cinnamon. One they are cooked, invert them on to a cookie sheet. Nuts will be on top with all that gooey goodness. Apply the glaze and enjoy.

I used one 4oz cook and serve box and it turned out fantastic!

Use butterscotch cook and serve instead of vanilla. It is like caramel sauce on them.

Oh my goodness! Thanks so much for this recipe. My husband loves cinnamon rolls and this recipe looks easy enough for me to make him some "homemade" ones.

Marydawn said...
