This isn't really a cookie or a cake, but a lot of people have asked for this recipe. I got it from a co-worker who makes it every Christmas. She prepares it at night, lets it refrigerate overnight, and then puts it in the oven in the morning. It smells really good while baking!
2 loaves of frozen Rhodes bread (Packages come with three loaves)
1 stick of butter
2 tablespoons milk
1 large package vanilla pudding
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Thaw two loaves of frozen Rhodes bread. (I put the two loaves on a plate in the fridge for six hours). After thawing, cut up the loaves with scissors into walnut-sized pieces. Put pieces in a large bowl.
Melt the stick of butter. Add milk and stir. Pour over bread and stir.
In a smaller bowl, mix vanilla pudding, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add mixture to bread and stir until bread is fairly well coated.
Put in a 9 X 12 inch pan. Cover with saran wrap and put in refrigerator overnight.
Heat oven to 350 and bake for thirty minutes until golden brown.
Mix some powdered sugar with water or a little milk to make a frosting and pour over warm rolls.
