Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
Unfold one puff pastry sheet and roll into a 12x10-inch rectangle.
Brush the pastry sheet with half of the melted butter and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top with half of the chopped pecans. Lightly press the toppings into the pastry.
Cut the puff pastry into 4(10x3-inch) strips. Stack the strips on top of each other making one 4-layer stack. Cut the stack crosswise to form 4 stacked squares. Place the stacked squares on their sides in the loaf pan.
Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a wire rack for an hour.
Stir together powdered sugar, maple syrup, and milk. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk or syrup.
Place the bread on a serving plate and drizzle the glaze over the top of the bread.
Can use brown sugar or granulated sugar.
You can omit the pecans if you don't like nuts.
You can use salted or unsalted butter in this recipe.
Store leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container.
