Monkey Bread doesn’t have to take all morning if you use Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Supreme refrigerated cinnamon rolls. Wrapping each dough ball in a square of cream cheese adds a melt-in-your-mouth surprise to the dish.
package (8 oz) cream cheese
cans (17.5 oz each) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Supreme refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
cup butter, cut into pieces
Heat oven to 350° F. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening or cooking spray.
Cut block of cream cheese into 24 equal-sized cubes. (Start by first halving block so that you have 2 thin pieces, and then cut each thin half into 12 equal squares.)
Set aside icing from cinnamon rolls. Separate each can of dough into 5 rolls; unroll each roll, and cut each in half.
Take a section of dough and fold it over so you have a rectangle shape that is 1 layer of dough thick. Place a square of cream cheese in the dough; fold over the dough, and gently crimp it around the cream cheese. Repeat with remaining dough pieces.
Place cream cheese-filled dough balls in pan. Place butter pieces on top.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown across top. Cool 10 minutes; run knife around edge of pan to loosen. Place heatproof serving plate over pan and turn over; remove pan. Cool 10 minutes longer.
Drizzle reserved icing over top of bread, allowing some to drizzle down side. Pull apart to serve; serve warm.
Although monkey bread is best served fresh and warm, it can be reheated the next day in a 200°F oven or in the microwave.
For an even sweeter monkey bread, roll each square of cream cheese in brown sugar before rolling into dough.
