  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Stir white sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Combine half the sugar mixture, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture using a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the crumbly mixture; add yogurt and raisins to the well. Stir just until dough clings together.
  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead 8 to 10 times. Roll dough into 1/2-inch thickness and cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Arrange biscuits on a baking sheet; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. Whisk confectioners' sugar and orange juice together in a bowl until icing is smooth; drizzle over warm biscuits.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute the orange juice for water or milk, if needed.

very good and fluffy. I prepared a quicker way and didn't roll out the dough, instead I just used a muffin pan and rolled up a couple balls for each and voila! delicious.

These tasted good but were very flat...followed the directions exactly so not sure why they didn't rise much.

These are delicious! I used vanilla yogurt and increased the salt to 1/2 tsp (and added a dash of salt to the icing) and just added all the cinnamon-sugar mix to the crumbly mixture. I also adde...

I tried it and it was very good. I didn't use the icing and forgot to put the cinnamon sugar on before I baked them, but when done I brushed the tops with melted butter and sprinkled the cinnamo...

These were a tasty breakfast treat this morning. I did use Dannon Light & Fit Greek vanilla yogurt, as that is what I had on hand, and it worked great. My only recommendation would be to try to ...

It was great. Hubby loves it. I don't do the icing, only put sugar and cinnamon mixture as topping. Sometimes I use 1c wheat flour n 1c white flour. Still tastes great!!!

I thought they were okay, but all of my neighbors raved about them. I don't have measuring utensils; so I eyeballed the ingredients and ended up with something pretty runny (at least for someth...

I followed the recipe instructions but left out the raisins. I also added a dash of nutmeg with the cinnamon. I used a 2% greek yogurt and I love it! It really does taste like a cross between a ...

Good flavor but a little too much cinnamon for me. Like others, I forgot to sprinkle sugar/cinnamon, so I added it to the icing. I used Greek yogurt & needed about a 1/4 C more to get crumbs to ...
