Love strawberries? I know I do. It’s my all-time favorite fruit and this spring I just couldn’t get enough of it. When I’m particularly fond of food, I start to forge its way into every recipe idea I have. This week, I dreamed of strawberry pies, strawberry cream pie, strawberry ice cream … and strawberry shortcake monkey bread. The last idea was too exciting to not work with.
Now let me tell you that these monkey bread cookies are useless. So good, I’ve been shouting profanity after taking my first bite. I was stunned at how amazing she was, not to mention how amazing she was. You can serve it to anyone free of or not gluten and get great reactions in return. Bottom line: you need to make it !!
If you like classic monkey bread, you’ll have to try my original recipe. This new variation is fun and tastes just like baby strawberry cupcakes.
