SWEDISH TEA RING

1 packet active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
1 egg
1 tbsp granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups biscuit baking mix
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins
2 tsp cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Stir in egg, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and the baking mix; beat vigorously. Turn dough onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth, about 20 times. Combine the brown sugar, raisins, and cinnamon. Roll into a rectangle, 16x9-inches; spread with butter and sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture.

Roll up, beginning at wide side. Pinch edge of dough into the roll to seal. With seam side down, shape dough into ring on greaed baking sheet; pinch ends together. With kitchen scissors, make cuts 2/3 of the way through the ring at 1-inch intervals. Turn each section on its side. Let rise in warm place until double. This will take about an hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Bake tea ring at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Quick Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons warm water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl. Stir until well blended. Frost tea ring. Decorate top with chopped nuts and/or maraschino cherries, if desired.
