These were/are very tasty - I especially appreciate that there's not near as much work as making baklava! Went together pretty quickly and they were awesome, warm right from the oven! Thanks for sharing a great recipe, Boomette!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray and set aside (as a side note, it’s best to use a standard muffin pan if you can).
  2. Taking the dough from each crescent, gently press it into and around the sides of each muffin cup, making sure to seal the edges together.
  3. In a small bowl mix together the pecans, brown sugar, sea salt and cinnamon. Spoon the filling evenly into the crescent-lined muffin cups, gently tamping down with the back of a spoon. Place one tablespoon of butter on top of each cup.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes until the dough is puffed and golden and all of the butter is melted. Serve warm with a drizzle of honey or some vanilla ice cream.
