Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

I got this recipe from my friend Sarah. It makes the BEST cinnamon rolls. They are Reagan's favorite meal.

Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls for the Breadmaker

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons vanilla instant pudding mix (about 1/2 package of pudding)
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons milk
Remaining vanilla pudding mix

Roll: Place ingredients in the machine following manufacturer's instructions (usually dry ingredients first, followed by wet ingredients) and set for dough cycle. After completion of cycle, remove from machine and roll out to 17x10-inch rectangle.

Filling: Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread softened butter over dough and sprinkle brown sugar/cinnamon mixture over the top. Roll tightly from long end, pinching edges closed when finished. Slice into sizes of your choice (I usually get 12-15 rolls from this).
Place on greased cookie sheet and let rise until doubled.
Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes, until golden-DO NOT OVERBAKE!

Frosting: Mix together and spread over hot rolls.
