Pumpkin Spice Monkey Bread in a Jar

  • Monkey bread is a fun fall favorite at our house, especially when you add some extra autumn flavor with pumpkin pie spice. You can make your pumpkin spice monkey bread from scratch, or use biscuits as a shortcut for your bread dough and make them super easy to make. These fun mini-size monkey breads in a jar are perfect to serve up to kids for a fall harvest party, or pop the jar lids on once the monkey breads have baked and cooled to save for later or to have as a quick snack on the go.
