Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits!!

Here is a wonderful recipe for homemade cinnamon raisin biscuits! These little morsels of deliciousness have the perfect combination of cinnamon, raisins and brown sugar all topped with a sweet vanilla icing. Pure deliciousness!!

What you’ll need:
2 cups all-purpose or plain flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup raisins
3/4 cup buttermilk (or 3/4 cup milk with 2 1/4 tsp white vinegar)
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in raisins to coat and then mix in buttermilk. Mix just until dry ingredients are wet. Do not over mix.
Pat out on a lightly floured surface to about 1/2″ thick. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon mix over half of the dough. Fold the other half of the dough over top and again pat out to 1/2″ thick. Fold dough in half again and pat out to 1″ thick. Cut out biscuits using a biscuit cutter and place 2-3″ apart on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper to prevent over browning on the bottoms. Bake in a preheated 400*F oven for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.

For the icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 Tbsp milk
Combine well in a small bowl.
Drizzle over still warm biscuits. Serve and enjoy! Makes 12 biscuits. Enjoy!
