Quick No-Rise Monkey Bread

So I went to a friends house a while ago and her and her children had made monkey bread and I thought it would be something my kids would love doing.  Normally I don't by canned biscuits, in fact I haven't eaten a canned biscuit in probably 5 years now, but I wanted my daughter to be able to make breakfast all by herself for everyone.  The kids had a great time making it and they loved it.  Personally I could taste that it wasn't a homemade from scratch dough but the look on my kids faces making this and being able to say they cooked breakfast all by themselves beat out any negative thought I had about the canned biscuits.  I found this recipe at the Pillsbury site.   

Monkey Bread

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
1/2 cup raisins, if desired
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large -storage plastic food bag, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon. Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan, adding walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces. n small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces. Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm.
