As a mother, I always tell my kids not to eat with their hands, but when it comes to pull-apart bread, neither my husband nor I can resist using our hands. Pull-apart bread has become very popular recently and with good reason. They're beautiful, easy to prepare and incredibly fun to eat. Now that the Christmas parties are on their way, this delicious bread is a great dessert option because kids and adults will love it!

    Open the biscuits and separate them. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Roll each piece with your hands to create balls. You should have 64 balls when you're done. Submerge each ball into the melted butter, then through the cinnamon sugar until they're completely covered in sugar. Place about 1/3 of the balls (20) in a baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the dry cranberries and nuts. Repeat with another layer of 20 balls in the dish. Sprinkle with the rest of the cranberries and nuts. Finish with the last layer of balls.

    Bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until the bread is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and flip onto a dish to serve. Prepare the glaze by mixing powdered sugar with the orange juice. Pour onto the bread. Enjoy!
