If your family likes monkey bread for breakfast, you have to try these. They are made just like money bread, except you divide the dough among Texas-sized muffin tins. There's about a tablespoon of caramel sauce in the bottom of the cup, then another tablespoon of chopped pecans. Six to eight pieces of dough dredged in cinnamon sugar will fill the cup about halfway, then another two tablespoons of caramel sauce goes on top. If you're using biscuit dough, they go straight into the oven at 375 degrees. if you use cinnamon roll dough, as I did, let them rise for 30 minutes before going into the oven. 15 minutes later, pull the tins out, turn them upside down on top of a piece of parchment, and use a narrow metal spatula or spreader to scoop any spilled caramel and nuts and put them back on top of the muffins. Serve warm, and don't count on leftovers!
