Monkey Muffins

My parents came to visit, so I wanted to make something other than oatmeal for breakfast each morning.  I looked up a fun recipe for monkey bread on Pioneer Woman.  I ended up finding Monkey Muffins. It’s pretty much the same as monkey bread, but in portioned sizes and a shorter cooking time!

The Pioneer Woman goes into detail how to make them and has AMAZING photos.  Here’s the quick version:

Put a pat of butter in the bottom of a muffin tin.
Add a teaspoon on top of that, then a teaspoon of cinnamon on top of that.

Next, open a can of Pillsbury biscuits.  Separate all of them and cut em into quarters.  Put 4 quarters into each muffin tin and add another pat to each.

Sprinkle on another teaspoon of sugar and cinnamon.

Pop em into a 375*F (190*C) oven and bake for about 15 minutes.

After that amount of time, most people would think they’re done….but the Pioneer Woman is a Southern gal! SO, you can drizzle some sweetened condensed milk on each of em.  I stuck em back into the cooling oven for about 10 minutes so that the condensed milk liquified a little more.

My parents were suitably impressed and I think this might be a good “company breakfast”!
