so I'm posting it again. My apologies if it appears twice.

  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.
