Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 1/4 cups self-rising soft-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • Self-rising soft-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine golden raisins, ground cinnamon, and chopped pecans with flour in a large bowl.
  2. 2. Cut butter with a sharp knife or pastry blender into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Sprinkle butter slices over flour; toss butter with flour mixture. Cut butter into flour with a pastry blender until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas. Cover and chill 10 minutes. Add 1 1/4 cups buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. 3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, gradually adding additional flour as needed. With floured hands, press or pat dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches). Sprinkle top of dough with additional flour. Fold dough over onto itself in 3 sections, starting with 1 short end. (Fold dough rectangle as if folding a letter-size piece of paper.) Repeat entire process 2 more times, beginning with pressing into a 3/4-inch-thick dough rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches).
  4. 4. 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 parchment paper-lined or lightly greased jelly-roll pan. (Dough rounds should touch.)
  5. 5. Bake at 450° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir together 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 Tbsp. buttermilk until smooth. Drizzle over warm biscuits.
  6. Note: For testing purposes only, we used White Lily Self-Rising Soft Wheat Flour.
