Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 egg -- slightly beaten
1 cup water
(use 1 to 1-1/4 cups water)
Stir together flours, cornmeal, dry milk powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and
allspice in a large bowl. Add egg, then begin adding water gradually,
stirring with a wooden spoon. Add just enough water to produce a very
stiff dough. If you add too much water and dough is no longer stiff, add
a little more flour. Knead the dough with your hands to create a smooth
Preheat oven to 350°F. Roll out dough 1/4 inch thick. (It helps if
the top and bottom of the dough are lightly floured.) Use a cookie
cutter to cut out biscuits. Place biscuits about 1/2 inch apart on
lightly greased cookie sheets.
Bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. The biscuits should be lightly
browned and should not be moist inside. Turn off oven and leave biscuits
inside without opening oven door for 5 hours, or overnight, to let them
harden. Store in an airtight container.
Yield: About 4 dozen (3-by-1-inch) biscuits.
