How to Make It

1. Step
Make the dough: In a large bowl, whisk together the warm milk, granulated sugar, and melted butter. The mixture should be just warm, registering between 100–110°F (37–43°C). If any warmer, let cool slightly.
2. Step
Sprinkle the yeast evenly over the milk mixture, whisk to incorporate, and let sit in a warm place for about 10 minutes, until foamy.
3. Step
Add 4 cups (500 G) of flour to the milk mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
4. Step
Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour, until nearly doubled in size.
5. Step
Meanwhile, make the filling: In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon. Set aside.
6. Step
Generously grease a 9-inch (22 cm) round baking pan with the softened butter and set aside.
7. Step
Uncover the dough and add the remaining cup of flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well to incorporate.
8. Step
Turn the dough out onto a clean surface. Leave a bit of flour nearby to use as needed, but try not to incorporate too much. Knead the dough for at least 10 minutes, adding more flour as necessary, until the dough just loses its stickiness. The dough should be very smooth and spring back when poked.
9. Step
Roll the dough out into a 14-inch (35 cm) square about ½-inch (1 ¼ cm) thick. Square the corners with a bench scraper or a spatula to make sure they are sharp and even.
10. Step
Spread the filling evenly over the dough.
11. Step
Slice the dough lengthwise into 7 pieces that are 2 inches (5 cm) wide.
12. Step
Place 2 strips of bacon on each piece of dough. Starting from one short end, roll up each strip of dough and pinch the seam closed.
13. Step
Place the cinnamon rolls in the prepared pan, 1 in the center and 6 around the sides. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for 35–45 minutes, until expanded by about half of their original volume.
14. Step
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
15. Step
Bake the cinnamon rolls for 35–40 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes.
16. Step
While the cinnamon rolls are baking, make the icing: In a small pot, cook the maple syrup over medium-high until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Remove the pot from heat and let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
17. Step
In a medium bowl, whisk together the reduced maple syrup, cream cheese, and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
18. Step
Drizzle the icing over the cinnamon rolls, using the back of a spoon to spread if desired.
19. Step
Enjoy!
