Hardee's Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

Source: posted by Liz to TSR

Years ago I worked at a Hardee's restaurant. That is where I got the recipe. This version is cut down so that it doesn't make as many as we made at work. Hope it works for you.

4 cups self-rising flour
3/4 cup shortening - that's Crisco
2 cups milk or buttermilk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup raisins

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar. Blend in shortening with a fork until mixture is fine. Add milk and stir until just mixed. Add raisins and mix. Add cinnamon and mix until swirled through batter. Do not mix batter any more than you have to. Scrape batter onto well floured surface. Flour top and pat down with hands until 1/2 inch thick. Cut with 2-inch cutter and place on greased baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes Until golden brown. Frost with powdered sugar icing.

Makes about 24 biscuits.
