Ingredients

Streusel

1/2
cup butter
3/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
cup packed light brown sugar
3/4
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Glaze

1/3
cup maple syrup
2
tablespoons butter, melted
3/4
cup packed light brown sugar
3/4
cup chopped pecans

Buns

2 1/2
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1/3
cup milk
1/3
cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
2
tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1 In 1-quart saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter over medium heat. Stir constantly until butter turns a caramel brown color. Immediately remove from heat. Pour butter through strainer into a cup to remove blackened bits. Place cup in freezer to solidify butter.
  • 2 When butter is solid, place it in medium bowl with remaining Streusel ingredients. Cut butter into mixture until crumbly; set aside.
  • 3 Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease or spray 13x9-inch pan. In small bowl, mix maple syrup and 2 tablespoons melted butter; pour evenly in bottom of pan. Sprinkle with remaining glaze ingredients.
  • 4 In large bowl, stir Bun ingredients until dough forms. Place dough on surface lightly sprinkled with Bisquick mix. Knead to smooth dough, about 10 turns. Roll out dough to 15x9-inch rectangle. Sprinkle dough with streusel. Roll up dough tightly from one long side; pinch seam to seal. Use sharp knife to cut dough into 12 equal slices. Place cut side down in pan; sprinkle with any extra streusel that falls out.
  • 5 Bake 23 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately turn pan upside down, releasing buns onto serving plate; spoon any extra glaze that sticks to pan over buns. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Make sure the knife you use to cut the dough is sharp. You can also use dental floss to cut the dough into slices.

Be sure to turn the buns onto the serving plate immediately; otherwise, the glaze will harden and stick.
