Gorilla Bread

Today I'm going to do something that I don't do very often.  Today I'm going to share with you a Paula Deen recipe.  And not a post diabetes, she's turned over a new leaf recipe.  No no.  We're talking a legit, Fatty McFatFat, over the top, O.G. Paula Deen recipe.  Eeeeeeee!  Can't you just smell the butter already?  

I made this a few weeks ago to have for breakfast when my friends came to spend the night with me and Brandon.  The two moms of babes had to get up and head home pretty early which left a lot of gorilla bread for not a lot of people.  Whoops.  

Win and I enjoyed some along with a cup 'o coffee and the Clarion Ledger, Brandon had a taste when he stumbled in the den around 830 AM.  My favorite, however, was Lindsey.   Lindsey had three pieces and then proceeded to do little else for the next four hours.  Three pieces doesn't sound like to much until you remember that three pieces of gorilla bread = three biscuits.  I informed L-Dog of this when she was lawling around in a pre diabetic coma. 

It could have been worse, though.  I reduced the amount of sugar and butter by a good little bit. Mainly, you know, because I like my teeth and would like to have them for at least a little bit longer.
