How to make monkey bread
Step 1. Prepare the baking dish: Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a bundt pan with melted butter or cooking spray.
Step 2. Mix the sugar coating: Place the white sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a large plastic bag, seal and shake to mix well.
Step 3. Prepare the biscuits: Cut each biscuit in half, roll into a ball and toss into the bag with sugar mixture. Seal the plastic bag and shake to coat evenly.
Step 4. Arrange biscuits in bundt pan: Pour the bag of coated biscuit pieces into the pan along with any extra sugar left in the bag.
Step 5. Prepare pumpkin cream cheese sauce: Melt the butter, light brown sugar, pumpkin and cream cheese in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Use a whisk or spatula to stir the mixture until smooth.
Step 6. Bake: Pour the sauce evenly over the layer of biscuit pieces. Bake for 30-35 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes. Invert the monkey bread onto a serving platter.
Step 7. Make the glaze: Whisk the powdered sugar and milk together in a medium bowl until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the monkey bread and serve. Save extra glaze for dipping!
Tips for making pumpkin cream cheese monkey bread
- Replace 4 cans of regular biscuits with 2 cans of grands style biscuits. Cut the grands style biscuits into quarters (4 pieces) instead of halves.
- If you don't have a bundt pan, use a 9" x 13" baking dish. Spread the coated pieces into the dish, pour the sauce over the biscuits and bake for about 20 minutes. Start checking around 15 minutes to make sure they don't over bake.
- Use chopped nuts for even more fall flavor! Add ½ cup of chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts to the sugar and pumpkin spice bag before coating the biscuits.
How to store
If there are left-overs, store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or in a microwave.
