READY IN: 53mins




  • 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.
