Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Frosting

Cinnamon Rolls
1/2 of bread recipe
Butter spread or melted butter

Maple Frosting
1/2 bag powdered sugar (plus a little for thicker consistency)
1 tsp. maple flavoring
1/4 c. milk
2 Tbsp. melted butter
dash of salt

1. Spray counter and a baking sheet with cooking spray. Roll dough into a long, thin rectangle.
2. Using a butter knife, cover dough with a thin layer of butter spread (or melted butter). Sprinkle with desired amount of sugar and cinnamon. Tightly roll dough toward you to create. Pinch the seam to seal the roll. Cut the rolls to about 3/4-inch thickness.
3. Place rolls on greased baking sheet. Cover with a towel and allow to rise for 25 minutes. Place in preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.
4. To make the frosting, combine all ingredients. Using a whisk, stir until combined well. Pour over cinnamon rolls.

Notes: I found the maple frosting recipe on Pioneer Woman's blog. Realistically, you could use your favorite cinnamon roll frosting and add maple flavoring. I liked the flavor. I think the rolls would be good with brown sugar instead of white to complement the maple flavor. I will definitely be trying this again.
