This is my grandmother’s recipe and I’ve been making it since I was a kid. I can remember standing at the counter next to her and she’d let me cut the biscuits out of the dough using a juice glass. Easy to make and so good hot out of the oven smothered in butter.

RECIPE: Raisin Tea Buns
4 Cups Flour
8 tsp baking powder
½ Cup Butter
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 eggs (well beaten)
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Raisins
Combine dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar and salt). Blend in butter. Add eggs and milk. (You may need to get in there with your hands at this point.) Add raisins.
Roll out and cut into circles. Or simply pinch off dough and roll into circles.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. (I sometimes pop the oven on broil for a minute if the tops aren’t browned enough.)
Make dough without raisins and roll it out into a rectangle shape. Lightly butter it then sprinkle brown sugar and raisins (or you can use brown sugar and cinnamon). Carefully roll dough into log shape. Cut into ½”-1” circles. Place in pan and bake for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees. Makes great cinnamon rolls.

Seventh in the Tapestries series.
Samantha Calloway is desperately working to keep her farm from financial ruin. It’s the only thing she has left from her deceased family and she’s determined to make it a success at any cost.
Darian and Jace Hunter live in a world where women are in short supply and brothers must share. The magic tapestry has always brought a potential tapestry bride to Javara, but this time it transports the two brothers to a strange land.
When Samantha finds two strangers on her land she doesn’t believe their stories of magic tapestries and other worlds. But when she suddenly finds herself in Javara, she doesn’t know what to believe. And when the tapestry transports them all back to her farm, Sam has a choice. She must decide if she will be true to her family and their legacy or if she will abandon it all for a chance at love.
