these were so good! i scaled this down to three servings and it made 4 good size biscuits and one smallish one.. i reduced the sugar down to 1.5.. also added an extra 1/2 cup of cheese.. subbed canola oil for the butter.. added 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1/8 tsp of cayenne.. bf said only thing he could think of adding would be the butter.. i thought maybe a little more salt.. either way these are near perfect.. ty for the recipe

I liked the consistency of the muffins but I didn't find they had a cheesy taste at all. Next time I will add more cheese. They were fairly sweet but I didn't mind that.

Really enjoyed these, but found them a bit too sweet. Next time I make them I'll reduce the sugar.

a very consistent savory and yummy muffin! i've tried scaling it down to as low as just 1 serving and as high as the regular serving and it still turned out great. lovely for paring with soups and roast chicken or as an afternoon treat. will make it again and again. thanks...

A good muffin, really easy to make, with good texture and taste. The cheese flavor was there, but not too strong, which worked for us. I served this with beef vegetable stew, but I think they would go well with chili and other dishes as well. The extras stored well in a Ziploc bag for 3 days and did not dry out, which is great so that they could be happily eaten over a few days time.

These are really good! Not quite what I expected though. Some of the reviews said they were to sweet so I reduced the suger. It was still pretty sweet. I definitely recommend putting more cheese in.
