Monkey Bread

monkey-bread-smThis is a perfect recipe for Christmas morning.  It is sometimes called Pull Aparts and tastes very much like cinnamon rolls.  I’m not a fan of canned biscuits because of all the preservatives and chemicals in the ingredients list, but Pillsbury now makes Simply Buttermilk Biscuits that doesn’t contain all the yucky stuff.

Monkey Bread

2 can refrigerated biscuits
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon.  Separate biscuits, and cut each one into 4 pieces (a pair of kitchen shears works really well for this). Place a few biscuit pieces at a time in the cinnamon/sugar mixture, and toss to coat thoroughly.  Evenly distribute the coated biscuit pieces into a greased bundt pan.

1/3 cup sugar
1 /2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter or margarine

Place these ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, and stir until butter is melted and all
ingredients are thoroughly combined (DO NOT BOIL).  Drizzle this mixture evenly over the biscuit pieces.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, then immediately turn out onto serving plate.   Let cool a few minutes before eating.
