Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400°F.
Sprinkle nuts onto bottom of 12-cup fluted pan or 10-inch tube pan sprayed with cooking spray. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in small microwaveable bowl. Stir in syrup; drizzle over nuts in pan.
Melt remaining butter. Mix sugar and cinnamon in shallow dish. Separate dough into 20 biscuits; flatten each to 1/4-inch thickness. Roll cream cheese cubes in cinnamon sugar until evenly coated; place 1 on center of each biscuit. Gather up sides of dough to enclose filling; press edges together to seal. Roll each into ball; dip top in remaining butter, then in remaining cinnamon sugar. Arrange half the balls, cinnamon sugar-sides up, in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining balls to form second layer. Top with any remaining butter and cinnamon sugar.
Bake 30 min. or until golden brown. Cool buns in pan 1 min.; invert onto serving plate. Remove pan. Top buns with any remaining nuts in pan; cool slightly.
Since these tasty buns serve 20, they make a great addition to your next brunch. And their built-in portion control makes them extra convenient.
