Artisan Bread

Ah, bread. There’s nothing quite like the smell of homemade bread wafting through your house.

Cinnamon-Raisin Biscuits

I had promised this recipe in my last post (was it really in July?!) so without further ado, here it is!

Cinnamon-Raisin Biscuits


1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 tsp. salt
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
1/2-1 cup milk
1 cup raisins
powdered sugar glaze (2 T melted butter, 1 1/4 c. powdered sugar, milk or water to desired consistency)


1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Cut butter into flour mixture.

2. Add enough milk for consistency. Add raisins and shape into biscuits. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

3. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Let your biscuits cool a little and then drizzle icing over them.

And there you have them! Enjoy!
