It's the weekend – and a nice Saturday breakfast biscuit goes well with my tea!

Today I am making oven BBQ'd ribs and macaroni salad so I don't want to make a big or heavy breakfast. With Spring finally here – I'm wishing for BBQ!

This is a recipe I came up with a long time ago – I hope you get to try it.

Mama's Original Breakfast Biscuits #7 (yes #7 – I have many that I have created)

This is a biscuit which is very easy to make – prep time is less than 3 minutes, bake time is approximately 10 minutes.
Not sweet, very tender and moist –

2 cups baking mix (my homemade mix)
2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon/sugar**
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup finely minced apple (peeled, cored)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup apple juice

Preheat oven to 400* F. Grease baking sheet; set aside.


Whisk dry ingredients; add raisins, apple, and walnuts; toss. Add vanilla and apple juice. Stir to blend.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet.

Bake 10 minutes in preheated oven.
Makes 12

**Since I am making this for someone other than myself, and this person cannot enjoy cinnamon the way they used to, I added just a scant 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon/sugar. If you want to, you can add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, or 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, or 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice. I used walnuts because I had them on hand – pecans work well too. No raisins? Chop dried prunes – no one will know the difference!Or try dried cherries, blueberries, golden raisins, craisins, etc.

You'll see in other posts where I drizzled with glaze as well.
