1. Cut butter into flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
2. Add enough milk for consistency. Add raisins and shape into biscuits. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet or jelly roll pan.
3. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-13 minutes. While baking, make your choice of icing or glaze (see additional notes for two recipes). Drizzle icing over slightly cooled biscuits.
*Use less milk to hand-form biscuits; use more milk for drop biscuits.
Classic Cinnamon Rasin Biscuit Icing/Glaze Recipe:
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
Mix together 2 Tablespoons melted butter and 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Add water until runny and stir out all lumps with fork. Drizzle icing over slightly cooled biscuits. I set the biscuits on a cooling rack so the excess icing will drip off.
Soft and Cinnamon-y Topping for Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits:
3 Tablespoons softened butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix together 3 Tablespoons softened butter and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Add 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar and stir. Add about 2-3 Tablespoons of milk and beat with electric mixer on HI for a minute or until light and fluffy. Spread over slightly cooled biscuits.
