Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

Good Morning!

First of all let me share with you a few events in our day out here in the woods which is on the whole very uneventful. First of all the beautiful sunrise we woke up to yesterday. I was checking my e/mail, etc. when I looked out the window to gaze upon a sky that looked like it was on fire. Now I know what they say, red in the morning, sailors take warning however, our weather ignored the omen and it was a warm but nice day overall.


What kind of rat does this?

Next thing, Kenny went out to his workshop/barn/man-cave and came back to the house telling me he had something to show me. He had put out a tray of rat poisoning as they were getting in there and chewing the wires on the phone line, his fan and other things. On top of the box of poison, the rats or something had drug a fairly good size piece of molding over the top of the box along with pieces of glass and torn up paper covering the entire thing as if to warn fellow critters not to touch the stuff. We have some very smart vermin running around here!

And last but not least, as I was coming back from getting the mail something caught my eye that wasn’t there when I moseyed on down to the mailbox, an oak SNAKE! I was never one to hurt a snake but I knew this fellow would eventually get much larger and eventually find it slithery self messing with my chicken coop and stealing our chicken eggs, oh HELL no!!! Husband was unavailable at the time so I came up to the house, grabbed a shovel and took matters into my own hands. Boy that little son-of-a-gun gave me a hard time as I was trying to kill him on a not so solid of a surface but I won out in the long run and he will never bother our eggs, no no no!

All you need is a cup of coffee to start you're day!

Now on with the real reason I’m here, but it is fun to share some of our little happenings! I made these yesterday and we had them with our coffee this morning, husband is hooked for sure not that I’m going to make them very often as he is constantly harping about his weight gain since he quit smoking, ha ha! But here it goes:

Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits
  • 2-1/2 cups biscuit mix
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 heaping teas cinnamon
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • Optional Glaze:
  • 1-1/3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 12 tbsp water
  • ½ teas vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon for sprinkling
  1. Combine the first four ingredients in a bowl; combine egg and milk and stir into dry mixture, stirring just until moistened.
  2. Remove dough to a lightly floured surface and knead lightly 4 or 5 times.
  3. Roll out to ½ inch thickness and cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter.
  4. Place biscuits on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. If glazing, oh why not, combine the sugar, water and extract and top biscuits while still warm.
  6. Sprinkle top of glaze with extra cinnamon.

We were eating these breakfast treats as soon as I glazed them and had them again this morning with our coffee!

Gotta have varieties!

Gotta have varieties!

Are you ready for this one? I know I’ve been elusive again on putting in goodies to eat, but when you have around 50 boxes of Christmas decorations to put up and decorate around your house, damn, it takes time (especially at our age, HA HA or should I say HO HO)! But with the homestead almost ready for the holiday, now it’s time to bake all the holiday goodies to go along with it and with that I give you this one!

I finally got permission from my nephew to put this recipe on our site and no, I have not tried it ,although all his neighbors come a caroling to get his special drink when they have their community Christmas celebration, and if you’re not worried about a hangover this one is for you. Trust me, sip only or you will feel the wrath from HELL and BACK!

I am writing this just as he wrote it to me so any screw-ups are his fault not mine, another chuckle…………… Also not putting this in the recipe format as there are so many liquors, I wouldn’t know where to begin,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

1 dozen eggs
1-1/4 cups sugar
1-1/2 quarts heavy cream
1 quart milk
4 tbsp vanilla extract
Dash of each, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger
Small dash of salt3 scoops of Eggnog Ice Cream
Separate egg yokes and whites
1 very large bowl (it better be HUGE), mix yolks
Mix in 1/2 cup of sugar slowly
Mix in 1 quart of heavy cream
In medium bowl, mix (beat) egg whites with 1/2 cup of the sugar, set aside
In another small/medium bowl mix, 1 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, 1 cup Captain Morgan Tattoo Rum, 1/2 cup French vanilla vodka, 1/3 cup gin (oh hell, this one’s up to you, 1/3 cup Triple Sec, 1/3 cup Black Velvet, 1/3 cup Kahlua French Vanilla, 1/4 cup peach liquor, 1/4 cup coffee liquor, 1/2 cup clear rum, 1/4 cup coconut rum, 1 shot of Jack Daniels for luck (are you supposed to drink this while you’re making it?)
Mix all liquors with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 tbsp of vanilla, set aside.
Back to egg yolks, mix in 1-2 scoops of ice cream and add 2 tbsp of vanilla, add spices.
Slowly mix in the alcohol and then add 1/2 quart of the heavy cream with 1 scoop of the ice cream.
After that’s mixed, slowly blend in egg whites; pour into bottles to chill and enjoy!

He recommends to sip not gulp, REALLY?
Then he says, “If gulped you will need to take 2-3 aspirins and water.
Call in mourning! I think he meant call in, if you can, in morning or maybe not,,,,,,,,,,,,ha ha!

Well there you have it, something I have wanted to share for a very long time although we, personally have never had the guts to try this ourselves!!!!! Hope to see ya soon, right here and before Christmas!


Or the alcoholic content…and the hell with the calorie count…:-)
