  • 2 ½ tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls (Classic or Big & Buttery)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven 375 degrees F.
  • In a small saucepan on low heat, melt the butter and stir in ¼ cup brown sugar, corn syrup, and the lemon juice. Increase the heat to medium and whisk the mixture until the sugar melts and the mixture begins to boil.
  • Spray a square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and pour the sugar mixture into the baking pan. Top with the chopped walnuts and set aside.
  • On a clean lightly floured work surface, roll out the crescent rolls and press the perforated edges together. Roll into a rectangle and sprinkle the dough with ¼ cup brown sugar and the cinnamon.
  • Begin tightly rolling the short side up to the other short side and cut into even pieces.
  • Arrange the rounds in the baking pan on top of the walnuts and place into the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the buns lightly brown. Allow the sticky buns to cool in the pan for a few minutes and serve inverted.
