Monkey Muffins

Sal and I are making Monkey Muffins for Sunday Brunch today.  Very simple and makes the house smell so good!

Monkey Muffins

1 tube Pillsbury Grands
3 Tbs. butter
½ cup maple syrup
½ cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ cup chopped pecans (optional)

Spray pan with non-stick spray. Combine the melted butter and syrup in a small bowl and set aside.

In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts (if desired).  Spray your muffin pan. Cover the bottom of each muffin mold with a little of the syrup mixture. Then sprinkle a pinch of the brown sugar mixture on top.

Cut the biscuits into small pieces with a kitchen scissors.  Roll them in the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture and lay the biscuits in the molds, overlapping edges (closely together). Cover each with the remaining syrup and sugar mixtures.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool a little before serving.

Have a great Sunday and may God bless you and yours.
