Ingredients
  • Dough:
  • 1 stick salted butter, cubed, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • One 1/4-ounce packet yeast
  • 1/4 cup hot water, 110 degrees
  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 teaspoon Instant Clear Jel thickener, optional
  • Filling:
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • Glaze:
  • 1 pound confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan.

  • For the dough: Scald the milk. In a stand mixer with the dough attachment, combine the salt, butter and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Add the scalded milk. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.

  • In a separate bowl, add the yeast to the hot water with 1 teaspoon granulated sugar. Let the yeast mixture sit for 3 minutes to make sure the yeast activates. It should foam and start to bubble.

  • Add the yeast mixture to the mixer. Add 4 cups flour and Clear Jel Instant, if using, to the mixer. Mix on low speed for 3 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, add flour in 1/4-cup increments, using no more than 5 cups of flour total.

  • Let the dough rise in the mixer bowl until it doubles in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Punch down the dough. Roll out on a floured surface to a 12-by-8-inch rectangle.

  • For the filling: Spread the melted butter on the rolled-out dough.

  • In a bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Spread the filling mixture on top of the buttered dough. Lightly dust with 1 teaspoon flour.

  • Roll the dough into a log. Cut the log into 8 pieces. Place in the prepared pan. Let the dough rise again until it doubles, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • For the glaze: Mix the confectioners' sugar, maple extract and milk in a bowl.

  • Allow the cinnamon rolls to cool a bit, then drizzle with the glaze.
