  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 C).
  2. Mix cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, and margarine or butter. Reserve.
  3. Mix brown sugar, nuts, and syrup in ungreased 13x9x2 inch pan. Spread evenly.
  4. Mix baking mix, milk, white sugar, and egg until dough forms. Beat vigorously 20 strokes. Gently smooth dough into a ball on a cloth-covered board dusted with baking mix. Knead 8 times.
  5. Roll the dough out into a 16x9 inch rectangle. Spread with the cream cheese mixture. Carefully fold the dough lengthwise into thirds. Press edges to seal securely. Cut into 16 1-inch strips. Gently twist ends of strips in opposite directions. Arrange on the brown sugar mixture.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 C) until brown, about 15 minutes. Invert on a heatproof serving plate. Refrigerate any remaining rolls.

This was delicious, but it took a lot of preparation. The wait was worth it.

These turned kind of dry, but they were still good.

Was looking for something quick with no time for cinnamon rolls waiting for yeast to rise and this was it. Had no walnuts on hand so only used the regular pancake syrup on hand mixed with some melted butter with the brown sugar. Still turned out excellent with rave reviews from the family. Thanks for the great recipe, have added it to my favorites.

I took these to a Thanksgiving breakfast and they were devoured, I will have to make them again so I can have more than one. I did everything but bake them the night before and they were still great, I was afraid they wouldn't do well sitting in the refrigerator all night but they were wonderful. Use real maple syrup, I doubt the faux-maple flavored syrups would be good.

Nice treat Eleanor, and fairly easy to put together. Best if eaten the same day baked. The next day were'nt quite as good. Thanks.

This was NOT fool proof. My dough was too sticky and fell apart when i went to twist it. Cream cheese went everywhere. In the end I just threw it all in the pan thinking at least it would taste good. It crumbled apart after I baked it and tasted too sugary sweet for me.

I think the amount of milk needed may need to be adjusted depending on what type of baking mix you are using. Next time I think I will add bit by bit until the dough is moist. Other than that, the taste is good and the recipe is easy to follow!

This is a really creative recipe! I like the idea of it, but I didn't love the end result. It definitely had that distinctive baking mix flavor for me. My husband didn't taste that, but he thought they were too sweet. So, neither of us particulary loved this. The only change I made was to use sliced almonds instead of the walnuts. Thanks :)
