Ingredients

  • Dough:
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 4 Tablespoons butter cut into cubes
  • 3 - 3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 Teaspoons yeast
  • 1/4 Cup white sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp . salt
  • 1 Egg
  • Filling:
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Pound bacon cooked and crumbled
  • Frosting:
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tsp . maple extract
  • 2-3 Tablespoons milk

Instructions

  • Place the milk, sugar, and butter cubes into a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave mixture until warm but not hot. Butter should be at least mostly melted.
  • Add the yeast to the warm milk and allow to sit for 10 minutes, until foamy.
  • When your yeast mixture has proofed (is foamy) pour into the bowl of your stand mixer.
  • Add 1 cup of the flour, along with the salt and egg.
  • Using paddle attachment (or a large spoon if you're not using a mixer) start to blend ingredients together while adding remaining flour in 1/2 cup intervals.
  • When the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl, switch to your paddle attachment and allow dough to knead for 5 minutes. Or, pour dough out onto a well floured surface and knead by hand for 5-7 minutes.
  • Pat dough into a ball, and place in a large, lightly oiled bowl to rise for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  • While dough is rising, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, and crumbled bacon in a small bowl.
  • When dough is doubled in size, remove from bowl onto a floured surface and roll out from the center into a large rectangle (about 12x14).
  • Spread the dough evenly with 1/2 cup of peanut butter and sprinkle with the brown sugar/cinnamon/bacon mixture.
  • Starting at the long side of the rectangle, roll dough up tightly, and pinch the seam to seal the dough.
  • Slice the dough into 12 equal rolls.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick spray, and place rolls in the pan.
  • Allow the rolls to rise for 20 minutes.
  • Bake rolls 15-20 minutes until lightly golden brown.
  • When rolls come out of the oven combine all of the frosting ingredients with a hand mixer or whisk until well combined.
  • Spread frosting over warm rolls as desired.
