I have added pecans and dried cranberries to the biscuits and they tasted great.
You can also use a cream cheese icing.
I had used orange juice and orange zest which gave them a really great taste.
Enjoy

How to Make Cinnamon Raisin Buscuits

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  • 2Blend in shortening, I use my food processor to do this as it makes it easier to handle.
  • 3Add milk and stir in to dry ingrediants.
  • 4Add raisins and cinnamon and mix until swirled through batter.
  • 5Scrape batter onto floured board and roll to 1/2" thick.
    You can always just cut after you scrape the batter onto the board for a rustic look.
  • 6Cut with any size cookie cutter. I use a glass.
    You can put onto a cookie sheet or in a muffin tin.
  • 7Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes
  • 8Mix butter and powdered sugar together.
    Add milk and stir.
    Glaze with powdered sugar icing
