These are almost exactly like Jim N Nicks...the second time i made them, i cut the sugar to a little more than 1/2 cup, but less than 3/4 and I added a tad more cheese. The other thing i did different was I used buttermilk instead of regular milk cause our waiter told us that that's what the recipe called for....they sell the mix in the restaurant.
These are very very sweet with 1 c sugar...sweet overpowered the other flavors. Will try it again with lots less sugar.
I used melted butter, mixing the dry and wet ingredients separately and adding them together until just mixed then folding in the cheese. I made 32 hefty mini-muffins like they do at Jim N Nicks, filling the pans more than 3/4s full and baking about 9 minutes. The pans need to be greased very well. Warm, they tasted just like Jim N Nicks. They weren't nearly as good the next day. I'll be making these without cheese as well- will decrease the sugar to 3/4 cup when there isn't the salty cheese to counteract the sugar. PS: The server told us they have changed the recipe so it is less sweet and said the best substitute was plain old Jiffy mix with cheese added. I think these were way better than Jiffy mix!!
I made these last night and they are amazing!!!! Contrary to the recipe, though, I got about 40 out of this (larger muffins that the Jim n Nicks ones) rather than 12. Definitely makes a whole bunch! My family loved them :)
This recipe was not bad but I couldn't get over how sweet it was. This recipe would be perfect with about half a cup of sugar or even less
I have to say, I followed the advice of another reviewer and used only 1/2 c of sugar - and I'm glad I did, even then these were a bit too sweet for me. I do like how they cook. They have a good texture, cook evenly, no burned bottoms here! I think the sweetness is what makes these biscuits similar to Jim & Nicks, but the overall taste is different. I thought they used cornmeal in their biscuits... That's a recipe for another day! Thanks for this recipe, it was really easy and fun to try, and if my kids were rating, they would say 10 for sure!
To make less sweet, use 3/4 c. turbinado ("Sugar in the raw") sugar. I have tried many recipes in an attempt to duplicate these biscuits. This is a keeper. Great as a side with bbq!
Instead of cheese, add apples. You can make half with cheese and half with apples. Very good
