Monkey Bread

Let's plan ahead here for a moment. Say it's New Year's morning. You have the best intentions of whipping up a festive breakfast for your family, but you're feeling a bit foggy. You're still wearing your party dress under your spit-up crusted robe and one of your stick-on eyelashes has come un-stuck. Perhaps you had one too many glasses of champagne at your New Year's Eve soiree the night before? (Hypothetically speaking, of course.) At that moment, you're going to want the ingredients for Monkey Bread handy.

There are many variations of Money Bread, but this is the super simple version that my roommates made in college. Besides being quick and easy, it fills your house with the scent of cinnamon as it bakes. It's gooey with a crunchy crust of sugar on top. It's the perfect way to ring in the New Year.

Monkey Bread

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tube refrigerated biscuit dough (The kind that has 8 biscuits in the tube. Use whatever brand you like.)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon. Cut each biscuit into quarters and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. Place biscuits in a single layer in a 9" x 13" baking dish.

Combine melted butter and brown sugar and pour over the biscuits. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm.
