Who doesn't like the smell of warm cinnamon rolls from the oven. This is my version of Monkey Bread from a couple of different recipes. Easy to make, and such a huge hit at family events where you have people to help you eat it!!
Monkey Bread~ Preheat oven to 350
3 Pkgs of Pilsbury Biscuits (2 Pkgs if they are the Grands)
Mix together in a large ziploc bag:
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
Mix together in a bowl:
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Melted Butter
1. Cut each biscuit into 3 and form balls. Coat the balls by shaking them in the ziploc bag. Place in the bundt pan. When you have a single layer of balls pour some of the mixture from the bowl over. Repeat this until finished.
2. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
3. Let cool for 15 minutes. Remove from pan onto the serving dish.
1 Cup Icing Sugar
2 tbsp Milk
4. Spoon the glaze over the cooled Monkey Bread and serve!
Today I tried making homemade crackers for the first time. Turns out, they are super easy! These crackers are similar to Cheez It crackers....YUMMMMMM.
So here is the recipe:
1 1/2 Cup Grated Cheese (I used a medium cheddar)
4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
3/4 Cup Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
(These crackers have quite a zing to them, next time I may cut back on the Red Pepper Flakes just a bit)
1 Tbsp Milk
Preheat oven to 350
Mix everything but the milk until the dough is course crumbs.
Add milk and form a ball of dough.
Roll out your dough until it is about 1/8" thick. (I used an empty wine bottle from the weekend for a rolling pin, as I do not have one :)
Cut with a pizza cutter into 1" squares.
Poke a hole in the middle of each with a skewer.
Place on parchment paper
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Mine were closer to 15min.
I would have taken a picture of my crackers however this is all that remained by the time I thought of it. They were a hit and will be made again!
