Monkey Bread Muffins
A Tasty Twist on Monkey Bread
"Monkey bread is usually baked in a large tube pan and served by pulling off a 'lump' of bread at a time. My niece Ashley tried this idea for making monkey bread in individual servings by downsizing the biscuit pieces and using our Hot Maple Syrup in the mix. The muffins are a lot cuter and less messy!"
-- Trisha Yearwood
Preheat the oven to 375??F.
Place cupcake liners in 12 muffin cups. With kitchen shears, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.
In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup and melted butter.
In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, and chopped pecans. Dip each biscuit piece into the maple butter, and roll in the sugar mixture. Place 3 or 4 coated pieces in each muffin cup, pressing to compact.
Bake the muffins for 15 to 17 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks. Serve warm.
NOTE: To make traditional monkey bread, grease all surfaces of a 10-inch tube pan. Drop the coated biscuit pieces evenly inside the tube pan. Pour the maple butter over the biscuits and bake at 350??F for 40 to 45 minutes. Let the bread stand for 5 minutes before turning out onto a cake plate. Pull off one lump at a time.
