1 c. milk
1/4 c. water
1/4 . unsalted butter
1 egg, room temp.
4 c. (520g) bread flour *
1 (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
1 c. (220g) brown sugar
2 Tbsp. (18g) cinnamon
Combine milk, water, and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring often until butter is melted. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add liquids and the egg to the dry ingredients, combining with the dough hook attachment. Knead on low for a few minutes. The dough will be sticky but will come together in a shaggy ball. If your dough is more like cookie batter, knead in additional flour, a few tablespoons at a time.
Scrape dough into a lightly greased bowl and let rise until double, about 1 hour. Punch dough down, and then turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 10x17" rectangle. Spread with softened butter. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar and cinnamon, and then pour evenly over butter onto dough.
Roll up dough into a log, beginning with the long side. When rolled, pinch the dough edge to the log, then use a sharp serrated knife to slice log into 1 1/2" slices. Place dough slices into a buttered 9x13" pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise until puffy, about 1 hour. (Alternately, if you'd like to prep these rolls at night and bake them the next morning, place dough slices into buttered pan and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. The next morning, take rolls out of the fridge for at least one hour to raise until puffy.)
While dough is raising, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake rolls for 15-20 minutes, until the tops are golden and the edges are toasted. Top warm rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
1 c. (128g) powdered sugar
