My grandma, being the good European she was, enjoyed her afternoon coffee and treat. She was an avid baker, and we often enjoyed her amazing Zucchini Bread with our afternoon jolt. She loved a good, indulgent baked good, and I think these Monkey Bread Muffins would definitely fulfill her desire. Although she would probably make them from scratch…but I ain’t got time for that!

So I made them with biscuit dough. You know, the kind you find in the refrigerated section of your grocery store right next to the Crescents and the cookie dough? They are darn good and they make this recipe darn easy. The biscuits are cut into pieces and coated in a sweet cinnamon/sugar/butter/maple syrup mixture and then baked into a truly heavenly treat. I can just see my Oma dunking these little babies into her afternoon coffee and savoring every delicious bite.
