Dutch Biscuits

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tsps. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tsps. baking powder
3/4 cup shortening
2 cups mashed potato
1 cup raisins
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup sour milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine flour, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add mashed potato and raisins. Toss lightly until potato is well-mixed into dry ingredients. Combine slightly beaten egg and sour milk. Add to other ingredients, mixing lightly with a fork. Pat to 1-inch thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter. Place on greased cookie sheet. Lightly brush tops with milk if a shiny top is desired. Bake 15 to 18 minutes.
Makes 24 biscuits.
