Monkey Bread… I have seen pictures of it, heard people talk about it, but never tried it before! So after seeing many blog posts about it, I knew I needed to at least try it! So this past weekend I made it. My overall thought was it was delicious, but a bit too sweet! Not sure if I should have used a different kind of biscuit (recipe called for the Grands Biscuits, but I didn’t have any of these on hand. So I just used the regular biscuits), or perhaps of pouring the brown sugar butter mixture over the bite sized biscuit pieces, I should have dipped each piece into the mixture. DH loved it though! I will definitely try to make this again, but I would possibly try a different recipe!
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (again I used regular biscuits rather than the Grands)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
1/2 cup raisins, if desired
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2. Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan, adding walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces.
3. In small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces. 4 Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm.
