Gorilla Bread

I never like to serve my friends a dish, I haven't tried myself, so I got up this morning at 5:55 (you read that right) because Bo and Daisy were in the bed with us and at 5:55 I had enough of a foot in my back and an elbow in my neck...
I am making this wonderful recipe on Wed morning for my Woman's Bible study, so I thought I would make it this morning and try it out on my family.
It takes about 25 min to prepare so set aside enough time.

Gorilla Bread
1 Cup White Sugar
1 TBS Cinnamon
1 Stick Butter
1 Cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
1 8oz Package Cream Cheese
2 7.5 Oz Cans of Refrigerated Biscuits (10 count)
1 1/2 Cups Nuts (pecans or walnuts)

1.Pre heat your oven to 350, Spray a Bundt pan with non stick cooking spray.  2. Mix the white sugar and the cinnamon together and set aside.  3.  In a sauce pan melt the brown sugar and butter over low heat, stirring well, set aside.  4.  Cut the cream cheese into 20 equal pieces.  Press the biscuits out with your fingers and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon sugar mix, place one cube of cream cheese in the center of each and seal the biscuit around the sugar/cinnamon mix and cream cheese.  Repeat this with all the biscuits.  5.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup of nuts into the bottom of the Bundt pan.  Place 10 biscuit's on top of the nuts,  Sprinkle with 1/2 of the remaining cinnamon sugar and then pour 1/2 of the melted brown sugar and butter on top.  Now top with remaining biscuit's and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and pour remaining melted sugar over the top and top off with the remaining nuts.
Bake for 30 minutes.  Let sit for 5 minutes and place a plate on top of the Bundt pan and invert onto plate.
Eat and enjoy!

Gorilla, I was thinking it should have bananas in it because of the name! ;)

As long as there are no gorilla hairs in should be yummy.

The recipe sounds similar to our Monkey Bread. But I've never made it with cream cheese inside of each biscuit. That sounds very yummy.
