10 Easy Snacks to Make with Refrigerated Biscuit Dough

Sweet Biscuit Dough Snacks

1. Monkey Bread Muffins

A big pan of pull-apart monkey bread is great for a crowd, but these single-serving muffins are the way to go if you only want to make a small batch. Top tips: Bake them in heavy-duty paper or foil liners to keep the sticky caramel sauce from leaking through. And if you have an apple slicer, put it to work cutting up up the biscuits.

8. Breakfast Pies

Use this recipe as a starting point to create your own savory combos. Top tip: Don't use oversized biscuits unless you're using extra large muffin pans. The dough will rise so much it pushes the filling out. Lesson learned!

9. Easy Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

Four ingredients and 20 minutes is all it takes to whip up these quick mini pizzas. Home cook JLT says, "I wanted a simple recipe that my 3-year-old could help me make and this was perfect. I didn't want the pizza too bready so I peeled the biscuit in half before my daughter flattened and pressed it into the muffin tin. My daughter could do every part of this recipe, except put it in the oven and take it out. She was so proud that she made dinner for the family."

10. Big Ray's Mexican Monkey Bread

Wait, what? Cheesy, spicy pull-apart savory monkey bread? It's all that, and it can be more. Some suggestions from reviewers: Add Pepper Jack cheese, sausage, bacon, smoked mozzarella, pepperoni, salami, or cilantro. Not all at once, of course. Unless that's how you roll.
