Monkey Muffins

Saw this on the Pioneer Woman website and it was so easy! I modified this to make it easy for myself.

leftover bread dough (or refrigerated biscuit dough, cut into thirds)
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/3 c Sugar
ground cinnamon to taste
sweetened condensed milk or homemade glaze
chopped nuts-optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix cinnamon and sugar and place in a small jar with a shaker top. I save old spice bottles for this purpose. Spray 10 muffin tins with PAM. Melt butter, and add 1/2 teaspoon butter to muffin tins. Add 1/2 tsp of nuts if you are using them. Sprinkle in some of the cinnamon sugar.

Roll dough into walnut sized balls (or cut refrigerated biscuit dough into thirds). Place three into each muffin tin. Add more nuts if you are using them. Top with 1/2 teaspoon butter. Sprinkle on more cinnamon sugar. Allow dough to rise (1 hour was great)-even if you use biscuit dough, and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.

Remove from oven and immediately drizzle plenty of sweetened condensed milk over the top of each one. Be generous! Allow rolls to sit for a little while to absorb sweet, sticky milk.

OR: If you are using homemade glaze, cool for 5 min. I used refrigerator biscuits and topped with a little glaze of ½ c powdered sugar mixed with a little cream and mixed well until glossy. Put in a Ziploc sandwich bag and snip a corner to drizzle in a controlled stream on the slightly cooled rolls. Works great!
