Oh my goodness Annacia, what a treat. This is soooo good. The dh ate all but two last night, good thing I only made 1/2 the batch. I did get seven beautiful large biscuits. These are certainly reminiscent of cinnamon rolls, but with a flavor of there own. I didn't have any maple sugar so I used yellow sugar, I am out of white. It worked really well in this treat. Loved the maple flavor with the raisins. I used large dark frazer raisins and I would recommend them in the biscuits anyday. Sweet but not overly sweet, just a perfect treat for you when you want to treat yourself to something special.
