Five Ingredients Friday (Triple Nut Diamonds)

It has been a while since I've participated in "Five Ingredients Friday" hosted by Overwhelmed with Joy, but I really enjoyed this recipe I tried during the Christmas holidays. I found the recipe in the Taste of Home magazine titled "Best Holiday Recipes". If you love nuts as much as I do, you will certainly enjoy this one. Sorry it is 7 and not 5 ingredients. Actually if you count the 3 different kind of nuts, it is 9. (Shhh, don't tell.)
Triple Nut Diamonds
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cold butter, divided
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons honey
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup each chopped pecans, walnuts and almonds
Line a greased 9-in. square baking pan with foil; grease the foil and set aside. In a bowl, combine the flour and the sugar. Cut in 1/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; press into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
In a saucepan, heat the brown sugar, honey and remaining butter until bubbly. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; stir in cream and nuts. Pour over crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 16-20 minutes or until surface is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Using foil, lift bars out of pan; cut into 1-in. diamonds or whatever size you want. I made my diamonds about 3 in. each. Store in airtight container.

Anything with nuts is a favorite in my book! Thanks!

This looks fabulous, but is so not on my New Years eating plan! I may have to try them anyway.

Those sound fantastic. Thanks!

Oh my - that sounds heavenly. I love nuts!!! I'm afraid if I made them I'd be the one to eat the major portion of them. My husband is so much better about watching what he eats than I am. I may give them a try any way. Just because...
Have a great weekend.
