Incredible 90 Min. Bacon Cinnamon Rolls!

Bacon + Maple + Cinnamon and Sugar...  Great Success!
Complexity: Easy
Time: 90 Minutes/ Makes 1 dozen
 Incredible 90 Min. Bacon Cinnamon Rolls
What You Need:
10 cooked strips Bacon, crumbled (can use turkey or soy)
3/4 cups Milk
1 packet (.25 oz) Instant Dry Yeast
1 1/2 sticks Butter (room temp)
3 1/2 cups AP Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 Egg
1/4 cup Water
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1 tbsp Cinnamon
Pinch Salt

1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 tsp Milk
1/2 cup Cream Cheese (room temp)

To start, heat the milk and 1/2 stick of butter.  Once melted together and the milk is hot (do not boil) remove from heat and let sit.   Turn the oven to 350 degrees to start preheating.

Next, mix in a large mixing bowl 2 1/4 cups flour, baking powder, yeast, salt, and sugar (do not add the brown sugar).  Once combined, add the heated milk, water, and egg.  Beat well.  Slowly add the remaining flour until the dough is pulling form the sides.

This will need to be kneaded, so flour a surface and knead for about 5 minutes, or until the dough is even and well combined.

Cover the resting dough with a damp towel, and leave to sit for 10 minutes.  While the dough is resting,  mix the brown sugar, softened butter, maple syrup, and cinnamon with a fork.  You do not want this to be melted, otherwise when you roll your cinnamon roll it will become a disaster of epic proportions.

Now that the dough has rested, roll out to about 1/4 inch thick.  Crumble the butter and cinnamon mixture over the dough then sprinkle the cooked bacon.  Roll and cut into 12 cinnamon rounds.

Bake in a greased in 9X13 baking dish for 20 minutes.

Remove and let cool.  While cooling, beat together the iciing ingredients and pour over your freshly baked cinnamon rolls!

Now thats one Breakfast Roll worth Baking over!
