Summer of the Monkeys Bread Recipe

This month the girls in the book club chose the book Summer of the Monkeys. For snack they are going be making Monkey bread and then we will have it hot out of the oven. We did trial run of the recipe because it has been years since I made it last and I want to be sure we leave enough time for the dough to raise.

Monkey Bread

1 pound loaf of frozen bread dough - or make your own dough
1 stick butter
3/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Set the bread dough out to thaw and rise, about four to six hours.

Cut the dough into 24 pieces. Melt the butter in a bowl. Mix sugar and cinnamon in another bowl. Gently shape pieces into balls. Do this gently so the dough doesn't have to raise again.
Dip the pieces into the butter
and then roll in the sugar mixture.
Stack in a buttered pan. Sprinkle the leftover sugar mixture over the pieces. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Immediately after baking, turn out out on a plate.
Oh my gosh are these good!!!
