Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cans (16.3 oz each) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits (8 Count)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 2 oz (from 8-oz package) cream cheese, cut in cubes

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Generously grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large 1-gallon plastic food-storage bag, mix granulated sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan. Sprinkle any remaining sugar over biscuits.
  • 3
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat brown sugar, butter, pumpkin and cream cheese over medium heat, stirring with whisk frequently, until mixture is melted and smooth. Pour mixture over biscuit pieces in pan.
  • 4
    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until deep golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 2 minutes. Loosen edges of pan with metal spatula. Turn upside down onto serving plate, replacing any biscuit pieces and mixture from pan. Pull apart to serve. Serve warm.

  • This pumpkin monkey bread recipe requires plain canned pumpkin puree—not pumpkin pie mix, which is a complete pie filling with spices added. Double-check that you purchase the correct one (the pumpkin pie mix won’t yield the same results.)
  • Be sure the pan can hold 12 cups (pour measured cups of water into it to check the volume), so there’s room for the spiced dough to rise up without overflowing. Greasing the inside well, getting into all the nooks and crannies, helps the sticky bread unmold easily.
  • Pumpkin monkey bread using biscuits is best served fresh and warm the day it is made.
