Interesting recipe, just had to try it. I think reducing the suger by 1/4C and increasing the cinnamon would be helpful. There is just too much extra sugar after coating the biscuits. I think too that the addition to vanilla in the brown sugar/butter mixture would give the end result some better flavor.

Because the recipe says not to lift the lid, the monkey bread sits in the same position for all of cooking, and gets slighly burned around the edges. Doesn't harm the flavor, but makes those pieces rather tough. Also, the biscuits don't exactly bake the way I expected them's more like the dough just cooks and doesn't rise at all.

Please don't take my comments as negative. It is a tasty little dish if you are in the mood for a cinnamon baked item. I'll probably even try it again, but with a few modifications.

Kudos to the author of the's really quite the interesting idea!

CDKitchen Note: Crockpots cook differently (models, year made, manufacturer) so that could be the difference you are seeing.
