Herman Biscuits and Raisin Bread




Raisin Bread

Thin Vanilla Glaze


  1. Biscuits: Combine all ingredients using a large serving-type spoon. When smooth, dip the spoon (just to coat) in flour and knead the dough in the bowl with the back of the spoon till it's no longer sticky. Then flour your hands and make a patty of the dough and knead it between palms about 10 times.
  2. Break off 6 equal pieces and shape into patties 1-inch thick. Arrange in greased 1-quart baking dish.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or till golden.
  4. Let cool in baking dish for 10 min. before serving.

Makes 6 biscuits' double the recipe to make 1 dozen.

Raisin Bread: When you begin kneading the dough with the back of the spoon, add Raisin Bread Ingredients. Continue kneading Herman between your palms as directed above. Grease the 1-quart baking dish and break Herman up into 12 small balls. Dust each ball in a mixture of 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

Drop the balls into the prepared baking dish and bake at 425 degrees F about 20-23 minutes or till golden.

As soon as it's out of the oven, drizzle Thin Vanilla Glaze.
