While all desserts are comforting, this may be the closest I come to making a comfort dessert. As the semester is coming to a close, and we finish our thesis and term papers, and gear up for finals, I can’t dream of a better dessert to snack on. Today, we are making pull-apart-cinnamon-balls (aka my version of monkey bread). I only warn you, this can get messy fast, so be careful, be cautious, and get ready for a caramel gooey cinnamon doughy treat.
- 1 package of pre-made biscuit dough (Grand or Pillsbury)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ cup butter (½ of a stick)
- ½ cup of brown sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a square 9X9 inch pan, grease with butter or Pam
- Using the biscuit dough, separate and roll into 16 small balls of dough, roughly 1 inch in diameter.
- In a plastic gallon size bag, combine white sugar and cinnamon.
- Place balls of dough in the plastic bag with sugar and coat dough until completely covered in sugar.
- Line balls of dough in pan.
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and brown sugar in microwave for about 45 seconds.
- Drizzle brown sugar over the bough balls.
- Pop these bad boys into the oven for about 25 minutes or until they’re bubbling golden brown dough balls.
- Take out the final product, and let them sit for 10 minutes.
- On a plate or flat cookie sheet, flip over the dough balls.
- Best consumed warm out of the oven! They keep up to 2-3 days but microwave them if they begin to get hard. Enjoy.
