Creativity Challenge 2/12: Food Photography

I had intentions of going with something, ahem, healthier for our monthly project.  But February got away from me and ended with a snow day, and with each snow day comes a yummy tradition borrowed from a college girlfriend.  mmmMonkey bread...

There's dozens of variations out there, but we keep ours simple:
Monkey Bread

2 or 3 cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted, divided

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut each biscuit into quarters.
  3. Mix sugar and cinnamon in medium bowl.  Add biscuit pieces, in batches; toss to coat.
  4. Place half of the biscuit pieces in a greased tube pan, drizzle with half the butter. Repeat.  Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon-sugar on top.  Bake 40-45 minutes.  Cool in pan 5 minutes; invert onto serving plate.

Should be a tasty looking blog circle this month!  My friend, Krista Campbell, is up next and I got a little sneak peek -- um, yummmm and so jealous of that Arkansas sunshine that seems to follow her and her beautiful daughter everywhere they go.
