  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup pistachios chopped
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cans canned cinnamon rolls cut into quarters


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. For syrup, in a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, honey, cream, and butter. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Cool slightly. 
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine walnuts, pistachios, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. 
  • Grease a 10-inch round baking pan. Spoon half of the sauce, walnut mixture into the baking pan. Arrange cinnamon rolls on top. Add remaining sauce and walnut mixture.
  • Bake 40 minutes or until golden. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve warm!



*Feel free to use any nut combination you like. We loved it as is but if you prefer only walnuts you can omit pistachios or vice versa.

    Brought this to a Women’s group for a desert and it was devoured in seconds flat. Everyone loved it. Am doubling the recipe to take to a Labor Day party and I know my family will love it. It’s like making and easy Baklava with no phyllo. Delish!
