      1/2   C            Butter, softened
    1       T            Vanilla
    3       C            Powdered sugar
    1       Tb           Milk, just enough to fluff
                         -----OR* STICKY BUNS & TOPPING-----
    1       C            Butter
    1       C            Brown sugar
    9       Tb           Light corn syrup

   BUNS:In small bowl, combine water, yeast and sugar. Stir until dissolved.
   aside. In large bowl, make pudding mix according to package directions. Add
   butter, eggs and salt; mix well. Add the yeast mixture; blend. Gradually
   flour and knead until smooth, adding “sprinkles” of flour as needed to
   stickiness. Once the dough is no longer sticky and is soft and silky
   (like as baby’s behind), the dough is ready. Place in very large greased
   Cover and let rise until double in bulk (about 1 hour). Punch down and let
   rise again (about 45 minutes). On a lightly floured surface, roll out to a
   x 21 rectangle. Spread 1 cup of melted butter over surface.
   CINNABON TOPPING: In small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon together.
   Sprinkle all over top of surface. Roll up very tightly. With a knife, put a
   notch every 2 inches. With string or thread, place under roll by notch and
   criss-cross over to cut roll (makes a nice clean cut). Place on greased
   baking pan, 2-inches apart. Lightly press rolls down with your hands (just
   LITTLE, it helps to hold them together better). Cover and let rise until
   double again. Bake at 350-degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Take them out when
   they JUST start to turn golden. DON'T OVER-BAKE!  Frost warm rolls with
   Cheese Frosting.
   CREAM CHEESE FROSTING: Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth.
   Spread on
   very warm rolls. Rolls are best when served warm.
   CARAMEL STICKY BUNS & TOPPING: In a sauce pan or in your microwave oven
   butter, brown sugar and corn syrup.  Heat and stir until blended. Pour
   topping into the bottom of the pan (pans) you are using for the rolls,
   unbaked cinnamon rolls on top on the caramel sauce. Allow to rise in a warm
   place until double in size (about 1 hour). Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
   for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly brown. After removing pans from oven,
   cover with foil; invert onto cooling racks, cool 1 minute, and remove pan.
   Cool before serving.
