Nanny’s Cheddar and Raisin Biscuits

Nanny’s Cheddar and Raisin Biscuits

My Grandmother used to make these biscuits all the time. I remember standing at the counter, secretly picking the raisins from the dough before they went into the oven. I have since taken this recipe and made it my own by incorporating cheddar cheese into the recipe. You might think, oh gross!... but trust me when I say just how good the combination of raisins and cheese is together in these biscuits. These taste best served warm with butter and jam.

Servings 4 people


  • 4 cups Bisquick
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup butter (softened)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese (shredded)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease two baking sheets.
  • Sift four cups of Bisquick and one-half cup of raisins together in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk one cup of milk and three eggs together.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat one-half cup of softened butter, and one-half cup of white sugar together until light and fluffy, about one minute. Beat the egg mixture into the butter mixture. Add the Bisquick and raisins and mix until the dough is just incorporated. Fold in one-half cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly Bisquick floured surface and roll it out to a 1-inch thickness. Cut the dough with a biscuit cutter and place each one onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
