Sandy Raisin Biscuit (Russian Korj)

"This recipe was given to my mother by a neighbor when I still lived in THA BRONX NYC :D...Its a Russian version of a biscuit, or as called in Russian "korjik or korj". Its very popular in bakeries and school cafeterias...It has a sandy texture, some could think too much oil, but that can be reduced :) by whom ever wishes...BUT THEY ARE GOOOOOOOOOOD my family DEMANDS THEM!"

Ready In:




  • Beat well the eggs with the sugar.
  • Add the oil, mix well.
  • Add the baking powder, Mix again.
  • Add the raising, incorporate well in the eggs.
  • Add the flour one cup at a time, the first two cups will mix well. The third cup, you can use your hands to mix it better because it will be difficult to mix with a fork, or any utensil you usually use.
  • Put in a 9 by 13 rectangular pan, (you can lightly grease it with oil). Put the mixture with a spoon and spread it in the pan and even the top with a spoon.
  • Put in the over for 40-45 minutes, might even take 50. It has to be light brown on top. At 375°F.
  • IMPORTANT: After its ready, cut up into desired pieces immediately, or no longer then 10 minutes after its baked. If you cut it after its cooled, it will brake and will not give defined shape pieces. RECOMMEND to cut into smaller pieces (this will make less then 20 servings) because the biscuits are sandy, therefore easier eat when smaller). In any case, just keep in mind they are sandy and preferred to be smaller ;).

  1. This was good. Simple, and yet a little different. I added some chopped strawberries in addition to the raisins, since we didn't have enough, but pretty cool. Thanks for sharing!

Ok here it is about ME, IF I had no school I would write an infinite list! :) I am an electrical engineering student, in my 3rd year in Concordia University (montreal, Canada). I am in Canada for 3 years so far and have a long history of moving from country to country behind me! If I ever get time maybe I will tell hehe :)...... I am originally from Russia(I bet that is seen by my name), and now live with my twin sister and parents in Canada. I love to cook but bake in particular!

If anyone is intrested what is keeping me busy here is my short list! hehe....2 lab reports every week, plus 1-2 assignments, 1-2 quizzes, diodes, microelectronic circuits, signals and systems, numerical methods for engineers and computer organization and some more labs where I can play around with resistors, oscilloscopes, ammeters, voltmeters! wow exciting lol :D
