Cinnamon / Raisin Breakfast Biscuits

Another one of Aunt Faye's recipes from her collection.

2 C Flour
3/4 C Granulated Sugar, divide into 1/2 C and 1/4 C.
1 TBS Baking Powder
3 TBS Butter, cold and cubed
2 Large Eggs
1/2 C Half and Half
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 C Raisins
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Here's what you'll need:

1 - sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl:
1/2 C Sugar
Baking Powder
Whisk well.
Cut in the Butter with a pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs.

In a small bowl:
Half and Half
Whisk well.
Stir into the dry ingredients just until the mixture is wet. Do not over mix.
Fold in Raisins by hand.

Roughly drop the dough 2" apart,  by the Tablespoonful onto the sheet pan.

In a small bowl:
Whisk together the 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and remaining 1/4 C of sugar.
Sprinkle it over the biscuits.
Bake for 20 minutes. They should be golden brown.

Serve warm with Butter.

Peace in the Kitchen
