Suprise Monkey Bread

TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, cubed
2 tubes (12 ounces each) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3T Maple Syrup
Add a suprise?
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cut into 20 cubes
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts (optional)


In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat brown sugar and butter on high for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved; set aside. Flatten each biscuit into a 3-in. circle. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon in the center of each biscuit. Top with a cream cheese cube. Fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal tightly. Layer with half of the biscuits, cinnamon-sugar and butter mixture and 1/2 cup walnuts. Repeat layers. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

Simpler version:

This morning I used no nuts and 1/2 a recipe (with just one can of large biscuits) I cut the biscuits in half and followed the above directions but I used a pie plate instead. I used 3/4 the amount of butter/brown sugar and spread the mixture over the top of the rolls. and Baked for 18-20 minutes instead. See below....

You can eliminate the cream cheese and just roll balled dough in melted butter and then in cinnamon sugar mixture, then top with butter and brown sugar and Maple syrup instead. That's "traditional" Monkey Bread. Bake it for 30 min instead.
