Sorry once again for taking so long to post. My sister came to visit and were busy hanging out in NYC, DC, Chicago and all the Targets, Kohl's and Chipotle's that we could find. More about that later ( I left my camera in Virginia so it is being mailed to me...) but until then- a little piece of heaven-
Cheesy Biscuits

I was first introduced to these in South Carolina. Kind of an interesting story but I will spare you the details. I actually didn't eat them because I was too full from the HUGE baked potato I ordered but my friend Ben ate them and raved about how delicious they were. So I googled them and found a recipe- tried them out... and have been in love ever since. I seriously have made them for every dinner party/ bbq I have gone to since the big discovery. And now I share them with you. They are sweet- which I didn't expect. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar- but I tried putting a little less and they are just as good. I even made it with splenda and it is also good. I would recommend cheddar cheese rather than mozzarella- not as much flavor with the mozzarella- and I have yet to try it with sharp cheddar but I am sure that is even more flavor. Enough of my rambling... here is the recipe you MUST try... or invite me over for dinner and I will bring them! :)

Cheesy Biscuits (from Jim N’ Nicks)

1 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 cup milk

1 egg-beaten

4 Tablespoons margarine- softened

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Mix ingredients dry ingredients together. Mix liquid ingredients together. Mix together until just moist. Pour into greased muffin tin. Bake at 400° for about 20 minutes.

(I have only used mini muffin tins- but I am sure the big ones will work just as well)

Try them and let me know what you think!!
