Raisin Tea Biscuits
DirectionsPreheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Soak raisins in water for 10 minutes; drain and set aside.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Cut in the butter with a knife or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir milk into the flour mixture until moistened.
Add the drained raisins.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll the dough out into a 3/4 to 1-inch thick round.
Cut dough with a biscuit cutter and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Beat the egg with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl.
Brush egg mixture on each biscuit.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
