Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

This is a recipe I found on the Internet, but I've changed it a little bit. These are so awesome! I think these are a perfect balance because the biscuit isn't sweet, so the cinnamon frosting isn't too much. The biscuit part is so full of raisins and tender, and the cinnamon flavored frosting makes them extra special. -Sarah

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup raisins

cinnamon frosting:
1 1/2 Tablespoons softened butter (very soft, but not melted)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4-1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 Tablespoons milk

  • For biscuits, mix dry ingredients and cut in butter until crumbs form. stir in milk and raisins.
  • Press dough onto lightly floured counter and cut with a biscuit cutter.
  • Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees about 8 minutes.
  • Cool until warm and frost with cinnamon frosting.
  • To make frosting combine butter and cinnamon well, mix in powdered sugar, beat with whisk, adding milk until desired consistency. Must have very soft butter or it will not work.

Makes 9 biscuits
