Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

My husband, children, in-laws and grandchildren really enjoy these biscuits! They're especially good for breakfast, but can be served at any meal.

  • Makes
    8-10 biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • ICING:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and raisins; stir just until combined.

    These are so good! They are definitely a new family favorite! They're best if eaten right away, while still warm.

    They were really great fresh out the oven, but the next day they were really dry. What can I do to ensure they are not dry?
