Surprise Monkey Bread Friday, March 14, 2008
This is adapted from the magazine “Simple and Delicious”. It was a contest winner.
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter, cubed
2 12 oz tubes refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese cut into 20 cubes
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
In a small microwave-proof bowl, heat the brown sugar and butter on high for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved and butter melted. Set aside. Flatten each biscuit into a 3 inch circle. Combine the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp in center of each biscuit. Top with a cream cheese cube. Fold dough over filling and pinch edges to seal. Sprinkle ½ cup walnuts into a greased 10 inch fluted tube pan. Layer with half of the biscuits, cinnamon-sugar and butter mixture and 1/2 cup walnuts. Repeat the layers. Bake at 350 deg for 40 to 45 minutes or until brown. Invert onto a serving plate with is large enough to catch any syrup which runs out. Serve warm.
