Directions

  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.

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.

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...
