Rich Crescent Nut Delights


1/4 cup butter or unsalted butter
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash salt
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or Hungry Jack Microwave Ready Regular Syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons imitation maple flavor
5 teaspoons Pillsbury Best All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons cinnamon-sugar

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Melt 1/4 cup butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low. Add pecans, walnuts, cinnamon, salt, honey and maple syrup; mix well. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in maple flavor. Cool 15 minutes.

Sprinkle 3 teaspoons of the flour over work surface. Unroll dough onto floured surface; press perforations to seal. Sprinkle with remaining 2 teaspoons flour. Roll to form 18-by-12-inch rectangle. Carefully spoon and spread pecan mixture evenly over one long side of dough in 4-inch-wide strip, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges. Starting with topped side, carefully roll up dough. (There may be small breaks in dough.)

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the melted butter diagonally on ungreased large cookie sheet. Place filled roll, seam side down, over butter on cookie sheet. Pinch ends to seal. Gently flatten dough until 3 inches wide. Brush top and sides with remaining tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.

Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 25 minutes. Cut lengthwise into 2 long pieces. Cut each half into 1-inch slices. Serve warm or cool. Serves 12.
