Monkey Bread

1 C Butter

1 Tsp. Vanilla
3 tbs. Milk

2-3 cans biscuits, cut each biscuit into eight wedges. Roll each in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Stack in bunt pan and poor mixture over biscuits. Bake at 350 for 30 min.

When I make this I usually only use one can of biscuits. When you use more the middle doesn’t seem to bake all the way. Wes likes it when it’s not all the way done, but I like it baked all the way. This is up to you… I usually don’t use as much butter as it calls for either.
