Vanilla Pudding Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

I found this recipe on Recipe for Disaster and thought....yum! Her picture looked so good!! Well, these turned out great! I even made a crazy mistake and missed putting the melted butter in the dough....but they didn't need it they were so good!
*This made 32 cinnamon rolls. (Cut dough in half and cut each into 16 equal slices)

2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
6+ cups flour

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 tsp. cinnamon

Frosting:
4 oz  cream cheese

In a small bowl, combine water, milk, yeast and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Let sit 5 minutes . Add butter and eggs. Gradually add pudding mix and salt knead until smooth. Do not over flour!

Take soft butter and spread over the surface. In a bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top. Roll up very tight. Cut into even pieces. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet 1" apart. Cover and let rise until double again.Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. remove when they start to turn golden brown. Frost warm rolls with the cream cheese frosting.Combine butter and cream cheese; mix well. Add vanilla and sugar, mix again. Add milk until desired consistency.
