Raisin Cranberry BiscuitsMore biscuit recipes from Lisa's vegetarian kitchen:
3 cups of unbleached white flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
3/4 cup of cold butter
1 1/4 cups of milk
1/2 cup of raisins
1/4 cup of dried cranberries
Line a large baking pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut the butter in using a pastry cutter or a knife and fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the milk. Stir until just combined. Stir in the raisins and cranberries.
Shape the dough into roughly 1 1/2 inch biscuits and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for roughly 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Yields roughly 12 large biscuits.
