Okay, I really, really LOVE sock monkeys! I always have. So, I started looking on the Internet and you tube, and craft blogs finding video's on how to make them.

It is a very easy recipe using canned biscuits, cheese, and a little butter! I don't know about ya'll...but, down south, anything with butter is great! Basically, you can use a cake pan, or as I used today, a small, glass, square dish....I pre-heated the oven to 350. I melted a half a stick of butter in the dish....just cut that stick of butter in half, drop it in the dish, slide it in the over, and let it melt.
