I was so thankful for a weekend away to fellowship & have a break!
Andrea, myself, Kelli, & Amy...please ignore my cheesy smile--just goes to show how excited I was to spend time with these ladies!
While I definitely enjoyed my weekend I was also very ready to get home to Hubby yesterday afternoon. I managed to squeeze in a quick little nap before small group where I was in charge of snacks...strawberries & grapes with cream cheese fruit dip (simply a jar of marshmallow creme & 8 oz of cream cheese) & monkey bread was on the menu. I made Pastor Ryan's Monkey Bread straight from Pioneer Woman & it was sooooo yummy! Also soooo not good for you, but it was delicious!
Prep Time: 20 Minutes Cook Time: 40 Minutes
3 cans Buttermilk Biscuits (the Non-flaky Ones)
1 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons (to 3 Teaspoons) Cinnamon
2 sticks Butter
½ cups Brown Sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Open up all three cans of biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.
Next, combine the white sugar with 2-3 teaspoons of cinnamon. (3 teaspoons of cinnamon gives it a fairly strong cinnamon flavor. If you’re not so hot on cinnamon, cut it back to 2 teaspoons.) D
ump these into a 1 gallon zip bag and shake to mix evenly.
Drop all of the biscuit quarters into the cinnamon-sugar mix. Once all the biscuit quarters are in the bag seal it and give it a vigorous shake. This will get all those pieces unstuck from one another and nicely coated with cinnamon-sugar. Spread these nuggets out evenly in the bundt pan.
At this point, you’re going to want to melt the two sticks of butter together with ½ cup of brown sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. This can be light or dark brown sugar. Cook butter/sugar mixture, stirring for a few minutes until the two become one. Once the brown sugar butter has become one color, you can pour it over the biscuits.
Bake for about 30-40 minutes until the crust is a deep dark brown on top. When its finished cooking, remove it from the oven. If you have the willpower, allow it to cook for about 15-30 minutes before turning it over onto a plate.
Oh it's completely divine!!!
