Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, mix guava paste and water. Heat to boiling over high heat; reduce heat, and simmer 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until guava paste dissolves and sauce is smooth. Remove from heat.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, heat oven to 350°F. Generously grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with butter or cooking spray. In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix sugar and cinnamon.
  • 3
    Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Press each biscuit piece out to 1/4-inch thickness. Top each piece with about 3/4 teaspoon of the cream cheese spread. Fold edges of dough up around cream cheese spread, and pinch to seal.
  • 4
    Add cheese-filled biscuit pieces to bag; shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan. Sprinkle any remaining sugar over biscuits.
  • 5
    In small bowl, mix butter and brown sugar; pour over biscuit pieces.
  • 6
    Bake 38 to 43 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Loosen from edges of pan with metal spatula. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside-down onto serving plate, replacing any biscuit pieces and caramel from pan.
  • 7
    Pour guava sauce over monkey bread. Pull apart to serve. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cover and store any remaining monkey bread in the refrigerator up to 4 days. Reheat before serving.
  • tip 2
    Experiment with different flavors of cream cheese spread, such as brown sugar and cinnamon or honey butter cream cheese spread.
  • tip 3
    If desired, cut monkey bread before topping with sauce. Once cut into individual servings, top each serving with sauce.
