Monkeying around with monkey bread - Guest Post- Monthly Event

 I am planning to have a guest post every month. Would love to invite fellow bloggers and non-bloggers to share culinary tips and recipes. Email me if you are interested : turmeric53@gmail.com.  Looking forward to sharing and learning together.

My guests today : VC and RC - two young men, ages 11 and 7 ...who love to cook and relish the idea of creating something with their hands. There is so much to learn from children...they are not afraid to try something new and there is no fear of failure. Thank you V and R for sharing the recipe of Monkey bread with us.

Monkey bread is a popular dessert or breakfast pastry, coated in cinnamon and sugar.  A simple yeast dough is called for in most recipes, although one could use refrigerated biscuit dough for a easier version of monkey bread.

1 pkg refrigerated biscuit**
1/4 cup sugar
2tsp cinnamon
3 tbs margarine

...Preheat oven to 375•
Mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, open biscuits and separate on cutting board, use a table knife to cut the biscuits in half.  Melt margarine in microwave.  Shape biscuits in balls, roll in melted margarine and then in sugar and cinnamon  mixture. Use a spoon to dip the dough balls.  Place sugar/cinnamon coated biscuits onto cookie sheet. Place monkey bread into preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!!

Use caution when working with kids in the kitchen, please do not let them operate the oven and use a table knife to help them cut the dough.

A big thanks to my friend  for the pictures and for letting Vand R share the recipe.
