GUYS.  Pumpkin Monkey Bread!!  Sorry for yelling.  I’m a little excited about the first pumpkin recipe of the season.

I know you’re probably going “girl, it is only August, have you lost your mind?”  Nope, pumpkin season comes early for this girl (not just me, food bloggers everywhere) and I’m totally welcoming it with open arms this year!


Pretty much as soon as my kids head back to school I start day dreaming about Autumn things.  Pumpkin spice, mulled wine, caramel apples, cozy nights by the fire.

Well, it’s still shorts and flip flops weather here, so, the fire will have to wait.  Lucky us, the pumpkin doesn’t have to!

I’ve had this monkey bread for breakfast and dessert a few days in a row now!  Can’t get enough!

Next time, I’m going to make it for brunch and actually share instead of hoarding all the goodness for myself!

Our pumpkin monkey bread is still as simple to make as the classic monkey bread we all know and love.

We start with two cans of refrigerator biscuits, roll them in cinnamon/sugar/pumpkin pie spice mixture.

Then you’ll just melt together your pumpkin, butter, cream cheese, brown sugar.

Layer half the biscuits, half of your ooey gooey pumpkin mixture, more biscuits, more pumpkin deliciousness!

Pretty darn simple!

Do make sure you grease your bundt pan very well to avoid sticking!

I use a stick of butter for this, and make sure to get every nook and cranny.

Did I mention that the cinnamon glaze is to die for??  Only four simple ingredients, and it seriously tastes like heaven!

I hope you all enjoy this early taste of fall as much as we have!
