MSCE April and Kids Craft Week: Yum, Monkey Bread!

O.K so baking might not be everyone's idea of a craft, but it's creative, and kids love to do it. And for me baking is a crafty endeavor. Kids of any age can help make this recipe and people of all ages will love to eat it (We had it after dinner tonight, yum.)

You'll need:

A container of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
About 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
About 3 tablespoons of sugar
About 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/4 cup of butter

First pre-heat the oven to 350 (or whatever the directions for the rolls say). Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. 

Open the tube of biscuits- if your using the regular small size biscuits cut them into 4 pieces- if your store, like mine, seems to be out of the regular size and you are forced to use the grand sized just cut them into 6 pieces instead.

Then roll the pieces of biscuit into the spice mixture and place each one onto a greased baking sheet (or shallow baking dish). You want them to touch and start to make a pile 2-3 pieces high but don't squish the rolls together too much, and don't pile them to high you want it to cook all the way through.

Once you have all of the biscuit pieces coated in the spice mixture and on the baking sheet you should have some sugar and spice mix left, if not add about 1/2 a tablespoon of each into the bowl.

Melt the butter- add it and the brown sugar to the spice mixture and stir together to make a glaze. If its too thick you can add more butter, if it to thin add some more brown sugar. You want it to be the consistency of warm icing.

Drizzle this over the top of the monkey bread. Then put he bread into the oven and bake about 20-25 min. or until the rolls in the middle are cooked through.

Enjoy- I know we did! 

I l-o-v-e cinnamon and sugar! YUM.
