Fruity Pull-Apart Bread

Who doesn't love to start the day with monkey bread? This skillet version is packed with bright berries and dolloped with irresistibly rich cream cheese. A sprinkle of fresh basil brings it all together. —Darla Andrews, Schertz, Texas

    Pull apart breads are something I like to serve at holiday brunches. This one is a little different with the fruit. Delicious and will make it again!

    I cut the butter and sugar by about half and this was still awesome. Pretty easy to put together too. I set my oven timer for 30 minutes and it was done, so I would recommend checking on it a little early.
