Oh my, these are some of the best tea biscuits ever and being half English I know my tea biscuits! I am so happy to be the first to rate this recipe. These come very close to my Grandmother's! I used a full cup of raisins and doubled the amount of sugar because I like my tea biscuits a little on the sweet side. I also used half and half vs. milk. After I cut the biscuits, I let them set for 30 minutes to let the baking powder "react" in order to get them big and fluffy. After I did the egg wash, I topped them with a bit of turbinado sugar before popping them in the oven. These came out moist, light, fluffy, and simply delicious - perfect with a cup of tea! I have also made these substituting the raisins with miniature chocolate chips or dried cranberries. Thanks What's for dinner, mom? for a great recipe - my Mom (Nancy) requested these while she was in the hospital and I was so happy to have been able to make them for her one last time....
