- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup butter, cubed
- 2 (12-ounce) tubes refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cut into 20 cubes
- 1 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 60mins
In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat brown sugar and butter on high for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved; set aside.
Flatten each biscuit into a 3-inch circle.
Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon in the center of each biscuit. Top with a cream cheese cube. Fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal tightly.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup walnuts into a 10-inch fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray. Layer with half of the biscuits, cinnamon-sugar and butter mixture and 1/2 cup walnuts. Repeat layers.
Bake at 350°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
