Caramel pull-apart biscuits

My mom made caramel pull-apart biscuits a lot when I was growing up.  It had been about ten years since I had this treat until last wekend when she made it for a brunch celebrating my younger sister's birthday.  They were as sticky, sweet and delicious as I remembered.  We ate each and every piece.  YUM. 

Caramel pull-apart biscuits

2 tubes Pillsbury biscuits (20 total biscuits)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Generously grease a bundt cake pan.  In a small saucepan, heat the butter, water and brown sugar until melted.

Separate the biscuits and cut each into four pieces.  Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Dredge the biscuit pieces in the cinnamon sugar mixture and then put the biscuits into the bundt pan, spread around evenly.  Pour the caramel mixture (the butter, water and brown sugar) over the biscuits. 

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Let stand for 3 minutes then invert onto a serving plate.

  13. We call it Monkey Bread and people go crazy for it when I make it. So addictive as you cannot stop with just one piece! Used to make it so my boys little league teams and youth football teams all the time. One of my boys used to sell it to his friends...he took orders and would bring the monkey bread to school fresh out of the oven. Amazing how much these kids were willing to pay.

  17. do you want to take it up a notch...take some rhodes frozen rolls, and you only need about 15 for a bundt pan. take a about 5 balls frozen, sprinkle generously some butterscotch cook and serve pudding over it, just the powder and then take 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1 cube of butter melt in microwave, then add more balls around and do the same thing, until all 15 balls are in pan and all the pudding and melted butter and brown sugar is all over balls, cover with saran wrap for 6-10 hrs, i do it before i go to bed and then in morning bake until golden brown, let it cool for about 30 mins, dump on to plate and you will be in heaven....best ever

  20. Hi! The recipe looks very yummy. I would like to try it but here where I live I can not find refrigerated biscuit dough. Do you have any idea what else I can use to replace it? Maybe home made biscuit dough? If so kan I get a recipe to get same amount?
