Greek Honey Nut Pie

 Greek Honey Nut Pie

8 ServingsPrep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package (16 ounces, 14-inch x 9-inch sheet size) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • SYRUP:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon; set
  • aside. Brush a 9-in. pie plate with some of the butter; set aside.
