The perfect combination of apples, cinnamon, and tender biscuit pieces, Apple Pie Monkey Bread makes the perfect fall breakfast recipe for the whole family!
There is not many things I can remember really loving to eat as far back as I have loved apple pie. It has been one of my absolute favorite indulgences since I was just a tiny kid. These days I have been having some major apple pie cravings. Maybe it is being 35 weeks pregnant or maybe it is my wishful thinking that the weather will finally cool off and fall will move in but either way it has been on my mind in a major way!
Since I in no way have the time or energy to make a pie right now, and as hard as I wish it Costco will not start selling them {only pumpkin on the shelf, boo!} I was left with the lingering craving and nothing to cure the itch. After my last trip to the store where I scored a great deal on Pillsbury biscuits, I started to get an idea. All humility aside, it was a wonderful idea…. What if I took all that apple pie goodness and threw it in as the rich and delicious filling for some monkey bread.
So we made it. And we loved it. And now I and sharing it with you. When I was growing up there were two types of apple pies we would make. Very occasionally we would make one completely from scratch, but most often we would make kind of a “cheaters” version, where we made the crust from scratch but as a brilliant little short cut we used canned apples that were doctored up with my mom’s secret spice blend to make it taste just as good as homemade.
I took an adapted version of those spiced up apples and combined it with the biscuits, baked it and topped with some cinnamon glaze and it happened. Apple pie monkey bread. Y-U-M.
