Sweet Sundays // Cinnamon Pull-A-Parts

I’m pretty lucky to be married to such an excellent cook… not to mention a resourceful one at that. He’s also very sympathetic to my sweet-tooth… or perhaps just fearful of his wife when her sweet-tooth hasn’t been satisfied. When there aren’t any decedent goodies in the house, he always knows just what to do. In this case, he rounded up some biscuits from the fridge, a crap-ton of cinnamon and sugar and some good ‘ol healthy butter. Bring on the coffee, and I’m a happy camper (Some of you might know this as monkey-bread). Now, this recipe is super easy… and definitely “to taste”, so feel free to experiment or alter as needed!

  • 3 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a cake pan of your choosing.
  2. In a small mixing bowl – combine sugar and cinnamon (you can also add a bit of salt or brown sugar).
  3. Open the biscuits and cut each biscuit into four pieces; set aside.
  4. Put the pieces of biscuit into the mixture, a few at a time, until they are all completely coated. Arrange the biscuits in the pan to fit.
  5. Heat the butter in a small saucepan over low heat (or warm in the microwave), stir the remaining sugar mixture into the hot butter. Pour the butter mixture over the biscuit pieces, make sure to allow some to go under the biscuits-pieces.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or so, until top is a nice golden brown.
  7. Eat as is, or top with a glaze or walnuts!
