Description

The cutest monkey bread you will ever eat.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Butter
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 whole Lemon, Zested
  • 16-⅓ ounces, weight Refrigerated Biscuits
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • Juice Of 1/2 Lemon
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Melt the butter in a microwaveable bowl. In a separate bowl, add the sugar and zest the lemon into the bowl. Give it a quick stir. Cut the biscuits into 8 pieces.

Spray your muffin tin with cooking spray. Dip each biscuit in the butter then roll in the lemon sugar. Place in the muffin cups and bake for 17-20 minutes or until you press down in the middle and they spring back.

Make the glaze by combining room temp (or microwaved for a few seconds) cream cheese, juice of 1/2 the lemon and powdered sugar. Give it a good whisk to combine. If it is too thick, add a little additional lemon juice or splash of milk. If it is too thin, add additional powdered sugar. It depends on how juicy your lemon is. Drizzle the glaze on top of each cupcake.

Enjoy!

Sorry for the confusion Ladies! Cut each biscuit into 12 pieces and place 8 in each cup. :)

Sorry to be dense, but do I cut each biscuit into 8 pieces and put 8 to a muffin cup? Thanks! :)
