I receive the Pillsbury email on a regular basis. Friday when I received the email and opened it up I was faced with these rolls. This was one of those times when I knew I would be making the treat ASAP! I love maple and I love bacon. When I was a young girl having breakfast at Nanny’s, I would dip my crispy bacon into the maple syrup. That was a treat I loved to savor and didn’t get to enjoy at home with Mom being vegetarian.
The only thing I was missing was the pure maple syrup. While our maple syrup is ready for pick up, we haven’t gotten it yet. So, in an attempt to use up the Aunt Jemima I bought to tide us over I made the recipe with it. It’s not my preference and if you have access to real maple syrup, I suggest you go that route. You just won’t need as much cream as pure maple syrup is not as thick as the Aunt Jemima.
- 10 slices precooked bacon
- 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated seamless dough sheet
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup
- ⅓ cup powdered sugar
- Heat oven to 375°F. Microwave bacon as directed on package until very crisp. Drain on paper towels. Set aside to cool.
- Generously spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with cooking parchment paper. Unroll dough sheet on work surface and press into 12x8-inch rectangle.
- In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the butter and 2 tablespoons of the syrup with fork or wire whisk until smooth and creamy. Spread mixture evenly over dough. Chop bacon and sprinkle over butter/syrup mixture. Starting at short end, roll up dough; pinch edge to seal. Wrap roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate 5 minutes to chill so dough will be easier to cut.
- Unwrap roll; place seam side down on cutting board. With a serrated knife, cut roll into 12 (about ¾-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides up, on cookie sheet.
- Bake 8 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Place waxed paper under cooling rack. Remove rolls from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix powdered sugar, remaining 1 tablespoon butter and remaining 3 tablespoons syrup with wire whisk until smooth. Drizzle icing over rolls.
