Lazy Sunday Morning

I'm a Saturday morning kinda workout girl. Especially on a perfect 75 degree day like yesterday, I actually enjoy getting up a little early on the weekends to fit a good, longer run in. However, I equally enjoy sleeping in and catching up on my calories on Sunday. :)

I'm the worst when it comes to sweets and baking. If a recipe calls for yeast I usually throw it away. I skim past dessert recipes knowing that I rather spend my time and effort on dinner and scoop some ice cream for dessert. So, I don't even know what to call these.... Coffee cake? Cinnamon rolls? Monkey bread? Given my amateur level status as a pastry chef, I will say they might not be the best you've ever had... BUT they are the easiest and pretty idiot-proof. If I can make these, a monkey can.

Sunday Morning Monkey Bread

2 tubes of refrigerated biscuit dough or crescent roll dough
hal a stick butter, melted
1/2 cup brown or white sugar (I did brown this time)
1 tbl cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins

icy topping: 1/2 cup powdered sugar whisked with 1 tbl milk

Preheat oven to 375.

Spread melted butter on the bottom of a round stone or baking dish

Break up the biscuits or crescent roll dough into one inch pieces.

mix sugar and cinnamon in the butter, and stir in dough pieces.

Pour it in the baking dish or a satue pan, and top with raisins (and I did walnuts too)

Bake for about 20 minutes and then top with the Icy topping.
