  • Place the strawberry preserves in a small bowl and freeze while preparing the remaining ingredients.

  • Place 1/2 cup biscuit mix and 2 tablespoons white sugar in a bowl.

  • Cut 2 tablespoons cold butter into the biscuit mix-sugar mixture with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; refrigerate crumb mixture.

  • Whisk together 2 cups biscuit mix, 3/4 cup white sugar, milk, egg, and 1/3 cup of melted butter in a bowl.

  • Fill each prepared muffin cup half full of batter. Reserve remaining batter.

  • Divide the cold strawberry preserves evenly over the batter.

  • Cut the cold cream cheese log into 6 equal pieces, and place each piece on top of the strawberry preserves.

  • Sprinkle muffins with the crumb mixture and chopped pecans.

I am the author of this recipe. Sheesh I submitted it years ago....anyhow. I've fixed it so it works and added a pic as to how it should look. As for the cheese use HALF. (4oz cream cheese 1/3 cup sugar). Just sprinkle the pecans on each. I didn't even use all the topping I had about 1-2 T of it leftover. I also baked mine for 30 min. I let them cool in the pan for 10 min before removing. I hope this helps. Sorry about the incorrect amounts! Read More

These muffins were delicious! I made the recipe as written and they came out perfect. I had enough batter and cream cheese mix to make a dozen. The recipe is a bit complicated but worth it if you know what you're doing. I will be making these again they were a big hit in my house! Read More

These muffins were so yummy! I did exactly as the recipe called and the jelly and cheese fell to the bottom of the muffin and the top part crumbled so it was a big mess. (But a delcious mess!) Will try the authors suggestion to reduce the cheese next time! Read More
