 I found the recipe in an old church cookbook Monkey Bread

Ooohhh la la – this stuff is crazy good.

Many years ago, my friend made this for me.  Wanting to make them for myself, I found the recipe in an old church cookbook, but it was missing several ingredients, so when I made it, it wasn’t very good.

Fast forward 12 years, on a quest to find a decent recipe for these, I came across one on the Pillsbury website, which we have tweaked a bit…

We love pecans with these, & didn’t like the crunchy sugar on top, & found that combining the sugar & butter prior to adding it to the biscuits, eliminates the crusty sugar chunks.  In my family’s review of them – they were a hit!


cup granulated sugar
teaspoon cinnamon
cans (16.3 oz each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
cup chopped toasted walnuts or pecans, if desired
cup firmly packed brown sugar
cup butter or margarine, melted
