This is my absolute most favorite recipe! About two years ago for a friends birthday I told her I will make anything you want, within reason. She asked for monkey bread… Because, although I love her, she doesn’t like a lot of sweets and actually hates chocolate, weirdo! So a promise is a promise, but what is monkey bread?! How do I even make it?! Well thanks to pinterest I learned that monkey bread was really simple, and actually a ton of fun to make!
The fun thing about this is that you can make a big monkey bread in a bunt pan or if you are going to have a ton of rowdy kids, or in our case some crowds of college kids, you may not want to share the bread so again thanks to pinterest I learned monkey bread can be just as good in a muffin tin for individual servings. In order to keep with my Christmas Countdown, this is the perfect dessert for a large party or could even be one of those “dangerous” Sunday breakfast. But enough with the chit-chat without further delay I bring you Monkey Bread!
Pillsbury Grand Biscut Rolls
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Cinnamon
1 Stick of Butter
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Start by lining a muffin tin with muffin cups, feel free to be festive you can purchase Holiday cups at any craft store or Walmart. Also, preheat the oven to 350 Degrees (F).
Now here is the fun part, mix the sugar and cinnamon into a zip-lock baggie and cut each biscut dough into 8 small pieces. Once the biscuts have been cut up throw a few pieces into the bag and shake your bootyy! Get those pieces covered in cinnamon and sugar goodness! If you have a little elf in the kitchen with you, let them shake up that sugar and cinnamon while you melt the butter and brown sugar on low heat. Once that has been melted and the (8) pieces have been placed in each tin take a tablespoon of the butter and sugar mixture and drizzle over each cup.
Once this is all complete… it’s time to bake! This is always my favorite part because the house starts to smell delicious!
*As an FYI if you decide against the butter and brown sugar mixture these taste like little scones, which is why my pictures don’t look gooey because I did not place the mixture on top. It’s up to you but either way it will taste amazing!
Bake for about 8-10 minutes like you would any biscut. Once these come out of the oven let them sit for a little bit to cool off, but after that they are fair game and will become a family favorite!
