This is one of those recipes that I found by following the link of a photo on Tastespotting. The link landed me on the blog Jenny Mac's Lip Smack, where I found her Quickie Stickies. When I saw and read how quick and easy these were I went ahead and printed the recipe. My kiddos are prone to requesting a midnight snack at about 8/9 o'clock each night. So this recipe was ideal.
While I printed out the recipe I didn't quite follow it but instead used it as a guide.
Here's the recipe. (My adaptations)
Quickie Stickies or Couldn't Be Any Easier Monkey Bread
*PREHEAT OVEN: 400 degrees
2 Tbsp. melted butter (4 Tbsp.)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 c. maple or dark corn syrup (1/8 c. didn't want a strong maple flavor)
1 -1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. chopped nuts (optional) (heaping 1/3 c. whole pecans)
*Pour mixture into cake or pie pan.
*Top with 10 refrigerator biscuits. (I used crescent rolls. I left it rolled up and cut the dough into 1 inch thick rounds. I then cut the rounds in half. After cutting them in half I added them to a medium bowl. Once they were all cut in half I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top and tossed well so that all the dough was coated. I then place the pieces of dough on top of caramel pecan mixture.)
*Bake for 10-12 minutes.
*Turn upside down onto plate.
