1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup water
1/2 (3.4-oz.) package  instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup plus 1 1/2 teaspoon milk
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the rolls, place melted butter, water, instant pudding, 1 cup milk, egg, granulated sugar, salt, flour and yeast in bread machine following manufacturer's instructions. Set for dough cycle.  After completion of dough cycle, remove from machine and roll out to an approximate 17 x 10-inch rectangle.

For the filling, mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread 1/2 cup softened butter over dough. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over top. Roll tightly from long end, pinching edges closed when completely rolled. Slice rolled dough into 1/2-inch slices or larger if a larger bun is preferred.  Place into greased cake pans or a cookie sheet. If using cake pans, use three 9-inch pans. Let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden.
