Cinnamon Filling:
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1 Tbl butter, melted

Combine brown sugar, sugar, pecans, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl. Add melted butter and stir with fork. Set aside.

3 cups flour
3 Tbl sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
6 Tbl butter, melted
1/3 cup maple syrup

In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add buttermilk, syrup, and 2 tablespoons of the melted butter, and stir until just combined. Transfer dough to a floured work surface and knead until smooth (it will still be very soft and a little sticky, but will be smoother and less lumpy). Place in lightly floured bowl, cover, and chill for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a 9″ square pan with non-stick spray. Roll out chilled dough into a rectangle about 18″ X 8″ on floured surface. Brush 2 tablespoons of the melted butter over dough. Pour cinnamon filling over dough and spread evenly, leaving about a 1/2 inch along one long edge. Press filling down to pack it on the dough.

Roll up to create a tightly rolled log (be gentle, as this will likely stick to the counter a bit, use flour and spatula to help). Pinch seam closed and lay seam side down. Cut into 9 even pieces (about 2″ each), and transfer to prepared pan. Brush with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, until golden brown.

Maple Icing:
2 Tbl butter, softened
3 Tbl maple syrup
1 to 2 tsp milk
1 cup powdered sugar

In medium bowl, cream butter and maple syrup, add powdered sugar. If too thick, add a teaspoon or so of milk to make drizzle consistency. Allow cinnamon rolls to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Pour icing over rolls. Serve warm.
