Ingredients

Pie

  • 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count), softened as directed on box
  • 2 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted, cooled
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Topping

  • 1/2 pint (1 cup) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie pan with cooking spray. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using sprayed pie pan.

    In medium bowl, mix walnuts, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and the cinnamon. Pour and evenly spread 1/4 cup of the cooled melted butter over bottom of pie crust. Spread walnut mixture evenly over butter. Drizzle another 1/4 cup butter over nut mixture.
  • 3
    Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Cut large slits in several places in top crust for steam to escape. Drizzle remaining 1/4 cup butter evenly over top crust.

    Bake at 45 to 55 minutes or until golden brown. About 5 minutes before removing pie from oven, in 1-quart saucepan, cook honey and lemon juice over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture has a watery consistency.
  • 5
    Remove pie from oven; place on wire rack. Slowly pour hot honey mixture evenly over top of hot pie, making sure it seeps into slits in top crust. Cool at least 3 hours before serving.
