Mickey Mouse Raisin Cinnamon Chip Biscuits -- Includes Recipe


Mickey Mouse Raisin Cinnamon Chip Biscuits

Mickey Mouse shaped raisin cinnamon chip biscuits from scratch!

Mickey Mouse Raisin Cinnamon Chip Biscuits

I made these for my husband for breakfast this morning, and he absolutely LOVED them. My batch made a dozen, and he ate half of them! The were soft, flaky, and scrumptious. They reminded me of the ones my mom used to get me-- Hardee's Cinnamon 'N' Raisin Biscuits. They were a special treat and I didn't get them very often, but they were the highlight of my day when I did!

I thought I'd share the recipe, since they turned out so well. So, here we go!

What you'll need:
2 Cups of Flour
1/3 Cup of Confectioners Sugar
4 tsp of Baking Powder
1 tsp of Salt
1 tsp of Cream of Tartar
1 Cup of cold Milk
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
5 Tbsp of frozen butter
~ 1/2 Cup of Cinnamon Chips
Raisins and Cinnamon (to sprinkle on top after rolling out)

For Glaze:
1 Cup of Confectioners Sugar
1/8 Cup of water
1 tsp of Clear Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp of lemon juice
3 Tbsp of melted butter
(For creamier glaze, use milk instead of water and add a few tablespoons of room temperature cream cheese)

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F; Mix all dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cream of tartar) in mixer; add cold milk and vanilla; then use cheese grater to slowly grate and add frozen butter to dough; add cinnamon chips and knead them in with your hands; turn the dough out onto a floured working surface, and roll out to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness (or however thick you would like); after rolling out, sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and then lightly press desired raisins into dough; use small to medium sized Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to cut out biscuits and place onto cookie sheet with parchment paper or baking mat, or onto an air bake cookie sheet, and bake for 7-10 minutes.
When the biscuits come out of the oven, use a basting brush and brush melted butter onto the biscuits; Mix all ingredients for glaze together, and use a fork to drizzle glaze onto biscuits.
*If the dough gets too warm or sticky while working with it, stick it in the freezer for approximately 10 minutes (but no longer than 15, to keep the baking powder active).

I hope you enjoy these biscuits as much as we did! And feel free to leave comments/ feedback or questions!
