  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Dough Sheet
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, very finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Open Pillsbury™ dough sheet and unroll onto a large piece of parchment paper. Use a wooden rolling pin to roll the dough very, very thin, about 1/8 inch thick. You don't want the dough to tear through, but you do want it as thin as possible.
  • 2
    Spread melted butter on dough sheet. Sprinkle brown sugar, sugar, finely chopped walnuts, and cinnamon on top of dough sheet. Beginning on the short side of the dough, roll up the dough sheet tightly, cinnamon-roll style.
  • 3
    Slice rolled log into 1-1/2 inch pieces, placing the spirals of dough inside a well-greased 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • 4
    Bake for 10-14 minutes, or just until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown on the edges and cooked through.
  • 5
    In a small bowl, stir together honey and chopped walnuts. Spoon honey-nut mixture over warm cinnamon rolls. Serve warm and enjoy!!

More About This Recipe

  • Baklava Cinnamon Rolls combine a breakfast favorite with a yummy Greek dessert to dial up breakfast time – big time! A few years back, I went through a baklava stage. It was all I wanted to eat for dessert every day for like a month. There was a little Greek café down the street where I’d go and blow $1.50 per slice. Three weeks in, I figured it was time to look for some cheaper way to get my baklava fix. Surely, there was a quick and easy mock-baklava that I could make at home. I was surprised to find very few recipes that pulled together all the flavors of baklava, delivering that golden honey-and-walnut goodness in a few simple-to-bake bites. There were baklava bars – but they took too long, baklava tarts – but I didn't have the required ingredients on hand in the kitchen. So, imagine my delight when the idea for supremely swirly Baklava Cinnamon Rolls came into my life – Pillsbury™ Crescent dough, filled with baklava yumminess, and topped with honey that's the color of the sun. This, dear baklava lovers, is the finest faux recipe I’ve ever come across. Simple, delicious, entirely baklava. You can top them individually for a gorgeous, gooey final presentation. All that honey and walnut mixture oozes into the hot rolls and makes for a remarkable treat, perfect for breakfast, brunch, and dessert. Swirls and swirls and swirls!
