These are like the raisin breakfast biscuits you used to be able to buy in some fast food chains. I don’t know if you can buy them anywhere anymore. But, you can now make them yourself.
They are great in the morning or even just as a snack.
Great served warm!
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons milk
Mix the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
With a fork or pastry cutter, cut in the butter
Add the milk and raisins and stir just until moistened.
Knead the dough about 10 times until the dough is fairly smooth.
Pat or roll the dough til about 1/2″ thick.
Cut into 10 or 12 biscuits with a floured biscuit cutter.
Place the biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. They will be golden slightly and when you touch lightly, the top will spring back.
Remove from baking sheet.
To make the icing, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk.
Drizzle over the biscuits.
