Instructions to Make Maple Latte Dough

Grab a Maple Pecan Latte and stir it with yeast in a medium bowl. Let stand 5 minutes.

In another bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat sugar, salt, and 1/2 cup of the butter until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until well incorporated after each addition.

Take latte mixture and stir in. With mixer running, gradually add nutmeg, cinnamon, and 4 1/2 cups of the flour, beating until flour is incorporated and dough pulls away from sides of bowl.

Place remaining 1/2 cup flour on a work surface. Turn dough out onto prepared work surface, and knead about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly greased (with cooking spray) bowl, turning to grease all sides. Cover with plastic wrap, and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size, 1 hour and a half to 2 hours.

Process pecans, syrup, and remaining 1/2 cup butter in a food processor until a paste forms, about 30 seconds, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as necessary.

Turn dough out onto work surface, and pat down dough. Roll Maple Latte Dough into a 16- x 12-inch rectangle. Spread evenly with pecan mixture, leaving a 1-inch border around edges. Roll up dough, jelly-roll style, starting at 1 long side. Trim edges, and cut crosswise into 16 slices. Place rolls, cut side down, in lightly greased muffin pans. Cover and let stand until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake in preheated oven until Maple Latte Rolls are golden, 20 to 22 minutes.

Instructions to Make Maple Latte Frosting

Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and butter in a heavy-duty electric stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until creamy. With mixer running, gradually add powdered sugar, beating until fluffy. Stir in maple syrup.

Remove Maple Latte Rolls from oven. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Spread frosting over rolls, and serve warm.
