If you like Jim 'N Nick's cheese biscuits

I ate at Jim 'N Nick's several times while I was teaching Spanish, and I absolutely loved their cheese biscuits. You can order 1/2 dozen of them, and I could eat all of them if I let myself. Today I was reading Monica's blog and was so excited to find that she had posted a copycat recipe of those famous cheese biscuits. They are more like muffins than they are biscuits; you cook them in a muffin tin. I made them tonight to go along with Amy's Kitchen vegetable lasagna (from my overflowing freezer). The biscuits were great! I couldn't believe how much they tasted like the Jim 'N Nick's biscuits. Next time I will use less sugar. Tonight I didn't use all of the sugar it called for, but I still think they were a little too sweet. I'm going to cut it to 1/2 cup of sugar and see if that's enough. I shredded my cheese instead of using prepackaged shredded, which I loved, but I would love even more than 1 cup of that cheese next time. It's fun trying out a recipe and changing it to meet your taste! I almost forgot to tell you that the muffins were done after 13 minutes even though the recipe said 20 minutes. Thankfully I was watching them. If I were you, I would stay close to the oven. Overcooked muffins aren't any good...

This week I plan to make oatmeal bread, and I will share the recipe if I like it.

Happy Cooking!

    Glad you enjoyed the muffins! I thought they were sweet too - have you made them again with less sugar?

    Have a great day! It was so nice to sit with you yesterday!
