What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1 3/4 sticks) butter, melted and divided
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 package (7 1/2 ounces) refrigerated flaky biscuits (8 biscuits)
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 5 teaspoons milk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat the bottom of a deep-dish pie plate with 2 tablespoons melted butter; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine walnuts, sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Sprinkle 1/4 of the walnut mixture over the bottom of the pie plate. Place the remaining melted butter in a small bowl.
  3. Separate each biscuit into 3 layers. Dip the biscuit pieces one at a time in the melted butter, making sure to coat each thoroughly.
  4. Layer 8 biscuit pieces in the bottom of the pie plate, completely covering the walnut mixture. Repeat the layers an additional 2 times. Top with the remaining walnut mixture and drizzle with any leftover melted butter.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden and cooked through. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto a serving platter.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over cinnamon bun pie, then slice into wedges. Serve warm.

I will assume we layer the biscuits with the pecan mixture two times, then use the rest of the pecan mixture on top. Correct? Sounds very good and I will be trying it soon.

The pecan mixture is actually used four times. A layer goes at the bottom of the pan, then two layers between the biscuits, and then a final layer on top. We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
