Monkey Bread

The other day Big Sissy and I tried our hand at Monkey Bread, a pull-apart bread recipe from Pillsbury.
I think it went well.  Here's the recipe we followed:

INGREDIENTS

1/2
cup granulated sugar
1
teaspoon cinnamon
2
cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
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

DIRECTIONS



Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large-storage plastic food bag, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon.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.In small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces.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.

We used to love making monkey bread when the kids were small. It was a tradition on Christmas morning before gifts were open. Thanks for the memories.
