Cinnamon-Raisin Buttermilk Biscuits

“I modeled this recipe after a favorite restaurant treat,” explains Myrna Itterman from Aberdeen, South Dakota. “They're excellent at brunch with a steaming cup of tea or coffee.”

    I haven't made these YET but can anyone tell me if you can use sour milk in place of the buttermilk?

    My batch came out a bit dry... I think I had too much flour on my surface when kneading. Great flavor though- will definitely try this recipe again.
