Maple Twist Rolls
Heat 3/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup butter until very warm.
Blend with 1 cup flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon instant dry yeast, 1 teaspoon maple extract, 1 egg.
Beat this with an electric beater on low for 2 minutes. Add remaining 1 3/4 cups to 2 cups of flour and knead to a soft dough. It will become smooth and elastic in about 5 minutes.
Let rise for about 45 minutes in a bowl covered in plastic wrap. In the meantime, make your maple streusal.
1/4 cup melted butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup chopped nuts, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon maple extract. Combine this together and let sit.
Divide the dough into 3 balls. Take out a pizza pan, and butter it. Roll out the 3 balls of dough to about 12 inches. Put 1/3 of the streusal on the first layer of dough, put another layer of dough on top of this and put the second amount of streusal on.
Finish with the third layer and again the 1/3 amount of streusal. Put a 2 inch cup on the center of the dough and cut 16 wedges with scissors. (use the glass as a guide as to how far to cut. They'll stay even all around..in the picture below you can see the faint outline of the glass rim in the center)
Twist each wedge 5 times. Remove the glass. Cover with a light tea towel and let rise for 30-45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. I used a convection oven at 350 degrees. Bake the twists until golden brown about 18-22 minutes. Cool for about 5 minutes on the pan and remove to a cooling rack.
Make the Glaze:
1 cup icing sugar, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1-2 tablespoons of milk, 1/2 teaspoon of maple extract. Drizzle this over the warm rolls.
