My nanny used to make these tea biscuits all the time. One of my favorite memories of visiting Newfoundland is standing at the kitchen table as she made these and gave us a little bit of the raw dough to taste. They’re light and delicious! Serve hot with butter and jam.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
Whisk flour and baking powder together in a bowl; stir in raisins. Whisk milk and eggs together in a bowl.
Beat butter, sugar, and salt together in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Beat egg mixture into butter mixture; stir in flour mixture until dough is just mixed.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll out about 1-inch thick. Cut dough with a biscuit cutter or juice glass; place biscuits onto the prepared baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Eat healthy breakfast to continue the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me power to make on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and make keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Make fruit a morning habit is easy . Easy as put the fruit in your fridge next to the milk or on the table next to your grain pan , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
