Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

So I don't have my camera today (Chris took it with him to meet Bob Lewis in Little Rock), so I can't take a picture for you yet...but these were soooo good! Reminded me of the cinnamon raisin biscuits we used to get at Roy Rogers all the time as a kid! :-)

The original recipe came out of the Southern Living 2007 Annual Cookbook. (I feel I simplified it a bit b/c the directions were a bit confusing!)

Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

1/2 cup cold butter
2 1/4 cups self rising flour
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar

1. Cut butter with a sharp knife or pastry blender into 1/4-inch thick slices. Combine flour, raisins, and cinnamon. Sprinkle butter slices over flour mixture in a large bowl. Toss butter with flour. Cut butter into flour with a pastry blender until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas. Cover and chill 10 minutes. Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until ingredients form a dough (adding extra flour as needed).
3. Press or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 2-inch round cutter, and place, side by side on a stone baking sheet.
4. Bake at 450 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
5. Whisk together milk and powdered sugar into an icing. Drizzle over warm biscuits.
