    OMG my grandma used to make us a Pluckett everytime we visited in Florida!! I have never heard anyone call it this, as all similar recipes are called "monkey bread". I still have her handwritten recipe and shes been gone for quite some time now...... You just brought back some wonderful memories by having this here... I am definately going to print and make one soon!!! Thank You
