Ingredients

For the Biscuits:

  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter for the biscuit dough
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter to brush over the biscuits

For the Filling:

  • 1/2 cup whole raspberries cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Instructions

For the Biscuits:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 
  • For the Biscuit Dough - Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium size bowl.  If a sifter isn't available, add these ingredients to the bowl and whisk them together.  Whisking has a similar effect as sifting does.
  • To the bowl, add cold butter.  Using a fork, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  • Then make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Add the milk to the “well” and mix it quickly with a fork until the dough sticks together. 
  • On a large cutting board, sprinkle a little flour.  Add the dough to the cutting board and knead it gently about 10 times.
  • Rolling the Dough - Add a bit of flour to a rolling pin and roll the dough until it’s about ½ inch thick. 
  • Using a biscuit cutter (or the top of a drinking glass), cut the dough into 12 circles. 
  • To an ungreased cookie sheet add just 6 of the circles of dough. 
  • Brush half of the softened butter over the top of the biscuits.  Set aside for a moment.

For the Filling:

  • For the Cinnamon and Sugar Mixture - In a small bowl, add cinnamon and sugar.  Mix together.  Sprinkle it on top of the buttered biscuit. 
  • For the Raspberries - Top each biscuit with 4 to 6 raspberry halves depending on the size of the berries.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the top of the berries. 
  • Top each raspberry biscuit with one of the remaining dough circles (like a sandwich)
  • On the top piece of dough, spread softened butter.  Then top with more cinnamon and sugar. 
  • Baking the Biscuits - Bake in a preheated oven until the biscuits turn a light golden color (about 12 minutes)
  • Serve right away while warm.

Notes

TIP:

  1. If a sifter isn't available, add these ingredients to the bowl and whisk them together.  Whisking has a similar effect as sifting does.
