|2 cups||All Purpose Flour|
|3 teaspoons||Baking Powder|
|2 tablespoons||Granulated Sugar|
|2 tablespoons||Shortening, chilled|
Sift dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening until it is the size of small peas. Using a small bowl, beat eggs, then beat in milk and pour into flour mixture. Stir just until blended; do not overmix or dough will become tough. Fold in raisins.
Roll out dough on floured surface until 2 inches thick, then cut into rounds on greased baking sheet. Bake in oven preheated ot 425 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Makes about a dozen.
