Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread
This recipe was brought to our family from a dear friend in Missoula. It is called Monkey Bread because you pull it off the loaf with your hands like a monkey would. This sweet dough is excellent for turkey and ham dinners and compliments Thanksgiving and Christmas like no other yeast bread can, plus it’s fun!
