We love biscuits! It seems no matter what you do with a biscuit, we like it. Southerners are like that! I make these sour cream biscuits as a breakfast treat but they are good warmed over anytime. Just add a tall glass of milk or a cup of hot coffee and grownups as well as children love this recipe.

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup milk
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add sour cream, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and mix well with a spoon.  Fold in raisins and milk and make into a dough, adding flour if  needed.  Pat or roll dough out (I just pat it out with my hands) on a hard surface and cut with a biscuit cutter.  Place biscuits on a sprayed baking sheet.  Bake in preheated 425 degree oven 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 10 – 12 biscuits depending on size you make them.
Topping for Biscuits
1 cup powdered sugar
4 or 5 tablespoon milk
In a bowl whisk together the milk and sugar until you get the consistency you want to drizzle over the hot biscuits.
Note: You can reheat biscuits and leftover topping in microwave.
