Ingredients

1
(13.2 ounce) package Pillsbury™ Simply...™ refrigerated rustic French bread
1/4
cup butter
1/2
cup sugar
1
teaspoon cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon nutmeg

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.

  • 3 In a small bowl combine the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside for later.
  • 4 Open the bread dough and place on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, divide the dough with a small slit in the middle. The divide each section again in the middle. Repeat until you have 31 slits. Using a very sharp serrated knife, slice the dough into discs using the slits as guides. Place all the slices on a large sheet of wax or parchment paper and flatten with a rolling pin.
  • 5 Brush each disc of dough with the melted butter.
  • 6 Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over all of the bread dough.
  • 7 Stack 5-6 pieces of dough on top of each other. Slice each stack in half and place both sections cut side down in a muffin tin.
  • 8 Place muffin tin onto a large rimmed cookie sheet to catch any sugar or butter overflow.
  • 9 Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow muffins to cool for ten minutes in the pan and then enjoy!

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Muffins

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Like your favorite sweet pull-apart loaf, these individual muffins have layers of buttery cinnamon sugar to peel off and nibble to your heart's content.


Sunday mornings are a little less fast paced around here — the only morning of the week that I actually have time to indulge in a breakfast besides cereal. So I thought, why not try these Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Muffins for a Sunday morning treat?

One of life's greatest pleasures is pulling warm bread apart. Mmm ... these muffins have layers of warm buttery bread sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar mixture. Each muffin has intricate layers just begging to be devoured.



Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread

You could totally make your own bread dough to start. But why? I used a package of Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread dough to start out these muffins fast and easy.



Make slits in bread dough.

I made small markings in the dough so I would know where to cut and to make sure all of the pieces were uniform in size.



Make discs of dough.

Using a very sharp knife, cut each slit into a slice of dough.



Roll out each disc.

Roll out each disc of dough on wax paper. The more surface area we have the more butter and cinnamon sugar we can incorporate into these.



Brush dough discs with melted butter.

Brush each disc with browned butter. Browned butter has a nutty taste and adds so much more than just regular melted butter. Once you've had browned butter you'll try to find a way to use it in everything.



Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Sprinkle the dough generously with your cinnamon sugar mixture. The mixture seeps into all of the cracks and crevasses when baking, making some major magic happen.



Stack the sugared dough discs and cut the stack in half.

Stack about 5-6 discs together and cut them down the middle. We want to put the cut side down here so that the pretty edges are showing up top.



Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Muffins ready to eat!

After they've baked you have layers and layers of cinnamon sugar bread all in one little muffin. It's really hard to eat just one!

PRODUCT REVIEW: SUPER WUBBLE BUBBLE BALL!

"Super Wubble is up to four times stronger and more tear-resistant than the original Wubble Bubble Ball. Made with a new super stretchy material called Xpandium, it’s super smashable and super squashable. Bounce it, throw it, kick it, smoosh it, smash it, even sit on it!"

My family took the Super Wubble Bubble Ball on this past weekend! We opened the box and found the instructions were simple to read and follow. It came with an air machine to blow it up, one patch in case of a puncture and a Vaseline like jelly to rub on the bubble to make blowing it up easier.

Once we blew it up,(and yes it will blow up to 3 feet), the fun started! It was bounced on each other, thrown up in the air and placed on head's to fit like a hat! It with stood being bounced against the house and kicked across the front pasture,(we live in the country with acreage) by the time we gave it all we had, it looked like a very dirty, brown dusty huge inflated 3 foot pink ball! Yes it withstood all the fu…
