Pickin’ a Memory
|January 12, 2012||Filled under Bread, Breakfast|
In the month of January everyone makes predictions about what the year ahead will hold. The hottest trends in swim wear (like anyone wants to think about a bathing suit 2 weeks after Christmas). The next big thing in technology (guaranteed to be a hand held device that requires thumb swiping). Presidential candidate predictions (…I have nothing nice to say and you know what the rule is for that…). It is as if the world has gone nuts with divination! In my spare time I like to review other foodie/cooking blogs and magazines to see what everyone is talking about. Even there I see evidence of prediction-mania. Here it is called “Trends in Food” and according to a top source the 2012 will be all about Sea Weed! Uh huh…well…we’ll see how that goes over in this house.
All this looking ahead makes me want to look back. All the way back to Mema’s Pickin’ Bread. Oh if only there were words for the memories that just this recipe title bring back. It is ooey gooey sweet childhood in a pan. And it is a perfect fit for Lunch-Wagon fans because it is cost effective and quick too. Just like Mema created a delicious morning memory for me, you can create one for your own loved ones. Whether it is with cartoons, hot chocolate, PJs and couch snuggling or coffee and the news paper in bed on Sunday morning this one is a real breakfast treat!
- Cooking Spray
- 1 cup pecan pieces, divided
- 4 cans refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits in each can)
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 tbs cinnamon
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
Putting It All Together:
- Preheat oven to 350 and heavily grease a bundt pan with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle half of pecans into bottom of pan.
- Using kitchen shears, cut 20 biscuits into 4 pieces each.
- Place sugar and cinnamon in a large, resealable baggie.
- Drop biscuit pieces in and shake well to coat.
- Drop coated biscuits into pan, spreading evenly around center (resist the urge to push them down, they need space to cook).
- Sprinkle remaining pecans on top.
- Repeat steps 3-6 with remaining biscuits.
- Mix butter and brown sugar and pour evenly over biscuits.
- Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, until butter is soaked in and top is lightly brown.
