Grandma's Teabiscuits

This recipe is old.  I'm not quite sure how old, but my Grandmother remembers her mother baking them when she was a child.  So before cars, there were Grandma's Teabiscuits.

You top them with just about anything: peanut butter, jam, honey.  They go with any meat & potatoes type of dinner and are simple to make.


Ingredients


  • 4 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 - 1.5 cups raisins (to taste)
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp oil

Directions


  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and raisins.
  2. Fold in the buttermilk and oil.
  3. If needed, you can add upto 1/2 cup additional flour, though it's intended to be stickier then you might expect.
  4. Roll the dough out to 1/2 - 3/4 inch thickness.  Cut into circles using a hollowed out 16 oz can.  Place on baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 400ºF for 7 minutes.  Reduce the heat to 300ºF and bake for another 7 minutes.
  6. Don't let the heat out, just reduce the setting.
