Sweet & Savory Cheese Biscuits
This is our new favorite cheesy biscuit recipe – it is SOOO good. I am just going to say it – these just might be better than Jim ‘N Nick’s famous cheesy biscuits (which I could eat at least a dozen of all by myself). We loved these. The best part – they are incredibly easy to make! They are even good reheated. We ate them with dinner the next night too. Just slap some honey butter on these puppies and go to town!

How to Make Copycat Jim N Nick’s Cheese Biscuits
These biscuits are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick baking mix, buttermilk, sugar, and vanilla extract. Incorporate shredded cheese into the Bisquick mixture with a rubber spatula. Spray mini-muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the biscuits comes out clean. Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter, if desired. Remove biscuits from the muffin tin and cool on a wire rack.
