I feel like I haven’t posted a new recipe in a while so I thought I should share these yummy treats that we had over the weekend. I make a double batch as they seem to disappear as quickly as they come out of the oven.
My kids loved helping with these. They can measure and stir as well as practice kneading their own little batch of dough and then cut out their own little biscuits too.
Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits
- 3 c. self rising flour
- 2 t. baking soda
- 1 T. cinnamon
- 1 c. butter or shortening
- 1 1/2 c. raisins
- 1 1/2 – 2 c. buttermilk or you can use regular milk with 1/2 c. sour cream
- 2 c. powdered sugar
- 2-3 T. milk
- 1 T. melted butter, optional
- 1 t. vanilla, optional
Preheat the oven to 400.
Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Cut in the butter or shortnening until crumbly.
Stir in the raisins and milk, adding the milk a little at a time until you get a soft dough.
Lightly knead the dough on a floured surface.
Roll or pat out to 1/2 – 3/4 inch thick. Cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter or small glass.
Place the biscuits on the baking sheets and allow a little room between each one.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on the top and bottom.
While the biscuits are baking you can mix together all of the ingredients for the glaze, if you are using it.
Let the biscuits cool 1-2 minutes and then drizzle with glaze or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
