I actually had to convince a little girl that this had nothing to do with actual monkeys. It was not monkey brains or monkey guts, like she was being told by all of the evil men (her father included) around her. Oh well. It certainly disappeared fast enough, monkey association or not.
Josh loves this so much that he requested it for our very first Christmas morning together. I’ve also made it many times to take to work potlucks and the like. Cheap, easy, and delicious.
•3 cans buttermilk biscuits (the non-flaky ones)
•1 cup sugar
•2-3 tsp cinnamon
•2 sticks butter
•½ cup brown sugar
Note: I often assemble everything except for the butter and brown sugar drizzle the night before, then throw it in the oven the next morning while I’m showering/ whimpering that I’m awake so early.
Grab a giant Ziploc bag and throw in the sugar and cinnamon. Cut each biscuit into four pieces (I use kitchen shears) and drop in the bag as well. Seal the bag and shake it all up, getting the pieces well coated in goodness. Grab a bundt pan and put pecans in the bottom. Scatter the biscuit pieces in the pan.(This is the point I tend to cover the pan and stick it in the fridge overnight, but that step is completely optional) Either way, the next step is melting all of the butter in the microwave, then mixing in the brown sugar. Pour this delicious mixture over the biscuits. Yes, it will look like way too much, but it’ll all work out in the end. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes until golden brown. Your house will smell heavenly. Let it cool for about 5 -10 minutes, then invert on a big plate and start inhaling.
