Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • 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. Read More

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 added more raisins. I rolled out a small circle and cut them into 8 wedges which I iced while still warm. They came out like decedent scones crunch on the outside warm and tender on the inside! Read More

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 cinnamon sugar on. Turned out real well. Didn't need frosting. My husband loved them. Read More

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 handle the dough as little as possible to ensure a light and flaky biscuit. My kids frowned at the addition of the raisins so I will omit the raisins next time but that's just personal preference. Thanks for sharing these GFG! Read More

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 something that was supposed to be cut). Since I don't have a biscuit cutter or even a round cookie cutter I didn't worry too much about the consistency and just plopped it in mounds on a cookie tray. I regularly bake bread and everyone who has tried these thinks I should switch to biscuits. (Not going to happen but they are now the title-holding champion of "most delicious 'bread' to exit my oven.") I only gave it 4 stars because I wasn't that impressed personally. Read More

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!!! Read More

I added 1 tsp orange juice concentrate to the dough and omitted the frosting. I also shaped the dough into a big circle. The kids loved it! They called it dessert pizza. Read More
