  • 2 cups cold Homemade Baking Mix
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing

  • Coarse sanding sugar, for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together baking mix, granulated sugar, raisins, and zest. In another bowl, whisk together cream and egg; stir into baking-mix mixture until a dough forms. Pat into a 6-inch round on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with cream; sprinkle with sanding sugar. Cut into 8 wedges, and pull them 2 inches apart.
