How to Make Delicious and Tasty Monkey Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl, mix together sugar and cinnamon.
Take dough and separate them. Take each disk, and cut it in half or quarters. Roll the cut dough into balls.
Gently add a few balls into the sugar mixture, gently rolling in mixture to coat thoroughly. Tap off excess sugar.
To a lightly greased (use cooking spray) flute baking pan add in a layer of coated sugar balls.
Add a quarter cup of cranberry sauce, spreading it around. Add in 1/8 cup of raisins, spreading it around too.
Continue with another layer.
With the remaining sugar mixture, add butter. Mix together. Pour sauce over the dough.
Bake 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown.
