Monkey Bread

REVIEW:
Not the monkey bread I remembered. The “caramelized” topping wasn’t the right taste for my tastebuds. Honestly, I think I’d like it better if there hadn’t been any topping at all involved (although I’m not sure it would’ve stuck together so well. I’m gonna look for another recipe. DH … loved it and wants me to make it again.

COST: $2.60
Three cans of buttermilk biscuits – $1.18 total – Walmart
1 Cup Cinnamon-Sugar – approximately $0.50 (ingredients already in pantry)
1 Cup Brown Sugar – approximately $0.50 (already in pantry)
1 Stick Butter – $0.42

INGREDIENTS:
3 cans buttermilk biscuits (I used Pillsbury 50-cal biscuits)
1 cup cinnamon-sugar (1 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon or more cinnamon)
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter

DIRECTIONS:
Cut biscuits into 4 pieces each. Roll each piece in cinnamon sugar (or put into ziploc bag and shake to coat). Put into bundt or angel food pan. Cook brown sugar and butter until caramelized. Pour over biscuits. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
