this is monkey bread...

Why is it called monkey bread?  If someone out there knows, please leave a comment and enlighten me.  All I know is that my local supermarket has not had our favorite Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls since before Christmas.  During my last food shopping trip, I noticed a recipe for "monkey bread" on the back of the Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits package.  The ingredients look similar to cinnamon rolls, so, I figured I would give it a try.

1 can Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits 7.5 ounce (10 in package)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted (I used "I can't believe it's not butter)
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1. Grease or spray cake pan.

2. Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon in 1-gallon plastic bag.  Cut each biscuit into quarters.  Put quarters in bag and shake to coat.  Remove pieces from bag and place in pan.  Mix butter/margarine and brown sugar.  Pour over biscuit pieces.

3.  Bake at 350 degrees farenheit for 18 minutes or until golden brown.  I baked mine in a convection oven, you may have to adjust the baking time slightly if you have a regular oven.  Cool 5 minutes.  Turn upside down.

Serve warm and watch them smile!
