  • Combine baking mix, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins in a medium-sized bowl and mix well. Cut in shortening using a fork until crumbly. Add milk until a soft dough form and mixture pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

  • Knead dough on a floured surface until no longer sticky. Press dough out using fingers to 1/2-inch thick. Use a 2 1/2-inch round cutter to cut out about 10 biscuits.

  • Remove skillet from the oven and place biscuits in the hot oil with sides touching.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

  • While biscuits bake, mix confectioners' sugar and milk together in a bowl. Frost biscuits while still warm and serve.
