Ready In:
12 biscuits




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper, extending edges over ends; set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Using a pastry blender, cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add milk and maple syrup all at once.
  • Using a fork, stir just until dough forms a ball.
  • On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll dough between two pieces of parchment paper or pat dough into a 14x10-inch rectangle.
  • In a small bowl combine maple sugar and apple pie spice.
  • Spread dough with 1/2 cup softened butter; sprinkle with the sugar-spice mixture and if desired at this point, sprinkle with raisins.
  • Starting from a long side, roll up into a spiral, pinching seam to seal.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut into 12 slices.
  • Arrange slices, cut sides down, in prepared pan. Drizzle with the 2 tablespoons melted butter.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Using edges of parchment paper, lift from pan to a wire rack. Cool slightly. Drizzle with Maple Glaze.

  • In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and maple syrup.
  • Stir in enough milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make a glaze of drizzling consistency.

    Oh my goodness Annacia, what a treat. This is soooo good. The dh ate all but two last night, good thing I only made 1/2 the batch. I did get seven beautiful large biscuits. These are certainly reminiscent of cinnamon rolls, but with a flavor of there own. I didn't have any maple sugar so I used yellow sugar, I am out of white. It worked really well in this treat. Loved the maple flavor with the raisins. I used large dark frazer raisins and I would recommend them in the biscuits anyday. Sweet but not overly sweet, just a perfect treat for you when you want to treat yourself to something special.

    Yummy cinnamon/maple rolls!!! I made 1/4 of the recipe, which resulted in 3 very large rolls. I should have cut the roll into 4th's as the 3 were way to high and flopped over while baking, but that didn't take away from the wonderful flavor. I used real maple syrup and expected a strong maple flavor, but it really just tasted like a normal cinnamon roll except for the glaze. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
