Yummy Raisin Tea Biscuits - No Sugar Added

This recipe came from one of my wonderful Canadian girl friends - it's so quick and easy and these are great for quick company stopping in for a cuppa. Freeze well and give you that home-made feeling without a lot of fuss. (I 1/2'd the salt as per recommend - I think when I traded the sugar for Splenda it probably didn't counteract the salt as well)

very good, moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. I would cut back on the salt next time. I found them a little salty. Definately will make them again
