Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread

This was yummy!  The only thing is, the cream cheese filling in each biscuit is a bit much.  None of my kids liked it, and I didn't either.  If you want to try the cream cheese with it, trust me and at least half it.  I also used pecans instead of walnuts, and only put them over half of the bread.  I will definitely make this again, just without the cream cheese - I guess, that would make it plain monkey bread, not gorilla bread.  :)  Recipe from HERE.

Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread Recipe

1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
2 (12-ounce) cans refrigerated biscuits (10 count)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2.  In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon.

3.  In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat, stirring well; set aside.

4.  Cut the cream cheese into 20 equal cubes.

5.   Press the biscuits out with your fingers and dip both sides in the cinnamon and sugar mixture, covering throughouly.  (my 4 year old did a great job!) Place a cube of cream cheese in the center of each biscuit, wrapping and sealing the dough around the cream cheese.

6.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the nuts into the bottom of the bundt pan. Place half of the prepared biscuits in the pan.

7.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, pour half of the melted butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle on 1/2 cup of nuts.

8.  Layer the remaining biscuits on top, sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar, pour the remaining butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of nuts.

9.  Bake for 30 minutes.

10. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Place a plate on top and invert.

11.  Enjoy!
Perfect individual pieces!
