Gorilla Bread

It's like Monkey Bread, but WAY better!!

Serves: 12-14

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 pkg. cream cheese
2 (12 oz) cans of refrigerated biscuits (10 count)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)

Spray a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Mix the sugar and cinnamon (or just use a premixed sugar and cinnamon mixture if you have some...). In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat, stirring well, then set aside.

Cut the cream cheese into 20 equal cubes. I thought that using the whole package of cream cheese was a bit much, so maybe leave a chunk in your fridge unless you LOVE cream cheese! Press the biscuits out with your fingers and sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon sugar. Place a cube of cream cheese in the center of each biscuit, and wrap the biscuit around it.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of nuts into the bottom of the bundt pan. Place 1/2 of prepared biscuits in pan, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, pour 1/2 of melted butter mixture over the biscuits, and add 1/2 cup of nuts. Layer the remaining biscuits on top, sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar and butter mixture, and add the remaining nuts.

Bake for 30 minutes, remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Flip onto plate.

WOW! Writing that recipe made me really hungry...Enjoy!
