To make one dozen maple cinnamon rolls, preheat your oven to 375°F and begin preparing the filling by stirring together brown sugar, ¼ cup Cabot Salted Butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg until blended.
Next, prepare the dough as directed in the recipe instructions below. After dough is made and kneaded, roll it into a 16 x 12-inch rectangle and spread filling over dough, leaving a ½-inch border. Roll dough up, starting with long side, and cut into 12 slices. Place rolls in prepared pan and bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack for approximately 5 minutes.
While rolls are baking, prepare the glaze by beating Cabot Cream Cheese and Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat at low speed until blended. Spread over warm rolls and enjoy!

This is the first time I have ever made homemade cinnamon rolls from scratch. I bake all the time but I guess never made these. Anyway, the recipe is easy and there are not many steps either so one can easily whip these up upon request. My guess we all have these ingredients on hand, which makes it that much better. Anyway, these rolls are AWESOME! Definitely going to make these over and over. Perfect amount of dough to filling ratio and the glaze is yummy and not too sweet.
