Good with coffee first thing in the morning. Very similar to the biscuits we used to get at Harmons.
- 1 3⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup instant oats
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 3⁄4 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients together to form dough.
- Drop by teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes.
- Drizzle with a cream cheese frosting.
I thought these were wonderful. IMO more like a scone than a biscuit. I increased the sugar to 1/4 cup and added a glaze (we like sugar!). I don't like how messy dropped biscuits look, so I light patted them into a 1/4 measuring cup and I got 8 well formed biscuits that fit perfectly into my 9" round glass baking pan. I turned the oven down to 400 since I was using a glass pan and my biscuits were thicker. These were just what my insomnia needed at 4 am. Thanks for posting!
I thought these could be sweeter than they were. Made for 123 Hits
These were excellent! I really liked their cinnamonny flavour complemented nicely by the oats. I used ordinary oats, cause that's what I had on hand and the biscuits turned out wonderfully. They were really easy to put together and also very quickly done. I followed Annacia's lead and baked them in scone shape, but half way through the recipe I realised, you may have wanted them to be cookies. That would be delicious as well, I think and Ill definitely give it a go soon. This is a keeper! Thanks so much for sharing, Hill Family! Made for Potluck Tag February 2009.
