Ingredients

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 1 (8 ounce) container plain yogurt

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ½ cup confectioners' sugar (Optional)

  • 1 teaspoon orange juice (Optional)

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.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute the orange juice for water or milk, if needed.
