Ingredients

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup quick oats (not instant)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp shortening
2 tbsp cold butter
3/4 cup buttermilk, well shaken
1/3 cup dark raisins


Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.


Cut in butter and shortening until a coarse-meal texture forms.


Pour in buttermilk and mix just until blended, mix in raisins. Do not overwork the dough!


Pat out on a floured board, cut with a cookie cutter or rim of a glass and place on ungreased sheets.


Bake 12 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking time.


Remove immediately to wire rack.

Notes

These are a delicious home version of my bakery's buttermilk biscuits. Rich, sweet and buttery, flaky and perfectly spiced with a hint of cinnamon, the dough works perfectly with dark Thompson raisins and (if you like) even pecans. Best warm out of the oven but can be frozen and microwaved for a quick nibble.
