Spiced Monkey Bread

We LOVE LOVE Monkey Bread around our house and we have a YUMMY recipe, I will have to share soon. But we tried this new recipe and it is quite good too! A little different taste but just as YUMMY!

Spiced Monkey Bread

3 -4 rolls of Pillsbury Biscuits Original
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg, ground
1/4 tsp. Cloves, ground
1 cup Light Brown Sugar
3/4 cup Butter, melted
1 cup Raisins or Dried Cranberries (optional)
1 cup Walnuts or Pecans, chopped (optional)  

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare bunt pan with shortening or cooking spray.   In a plastic baggie combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Take biscuits and cut each in half.  Place biscuits, several at a time, into the baggie and coat. Start by placing sugared biscuits into the baking pan in a single layer. Sprinkle raisins and nuts between and on top of biscuits. Repeat process with remaining biscuits.   In a medium mixing bowl combine brown sugar and left over sugar-spice mixture. Melt butter, pour butter into the bowl of sugar. Mix until well incorporated. Pour butter & sugar mixture over the top of the biscuits.  Place in oven and bake for 28-32 minutes. When done baking, the top layer should be browned and have a crispy topping. Remove from oven and let monkey bread cool in the baking pan for 10 minutes. Invert the pan onto a large plate or serving dish and allow to cool an additional 10 minutes. Serve by pulling apart individual biscuits.
