Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread (Monkey Bread)

Printable Recipe

This is very good. If you don't like the caramel on traditional Monkey Bread, try this version.

3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
4 cans (7.5 - oz each) Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, divided ( I use the kind where there are 4 canisters bundled together, and have blue wrappers)
1/2 cup plus 2 - 3 tbsp butter, melted

Grease a 9 x 13" pan. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a large, shallow bowl. Cut each biscuit into eighths and roll around in the sugar/cinnamon mixture until completely coated. Drop the biscuits into the cake pan. When you've used 2 of the cans, drizzle half of the butter over the biscuit pieces. Repeat layer with the other 2 cans of biscuits and then drizzle with the remaining butter. Bake 350 degrees for about 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown. Drizzle with a Basic Buttercream Frosting or a Cream Cheese Frosting while still warm.

If desired, use maple flavoring in place of vanilla extract if using the buttercream frosting.
