 Baking-Powder Biscuits
 Makes about 18  1 1/2 inch biscuits
 Says that this tastes best right out of the oven.
 1 cup all-purpose flour		1/2 cup apple fiber
 1 Tbsp Baking Powder		1/4 tsp salt
 1/2 cup rice bran		3/4 cup evaporated skim milk
 Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  
 	In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, rice bran,
 apple fiber, and salt.  Or you could do this in a food processor.  Add milk
 all at once and stir until ingredients are just combined; if you are doing
 this in a food processor, pulse the machine a few times just until dough
 is combined.  If the dough seems a little dry, sprinkle on a tablespoon of
 water and work it in.
 	With lightly floured hands, knead the dough for 30 seconds.  Then
 pat and push it out until it is 1/2 inch thick.  With a 1 1/2 inch biscuit
 cutter, cut the dough into about 18 rounds.  Set rounds on an ungreased baking
 sheet.  Bake for 16 minutes or until cooked through.
 VARIATIONS:  To make herbed bisuits, add 1 tsp dried herbs of your choice to
 the dry ingredients, before adding the milk.
 	To make buttermilk bisbuits, use 1% fat buttermilk instead of the 
 evaporated milk and substitute 2 tsp baking powder, mixed with 1/2 tsp
 baking soda, for the baking powder.
 	To make oat-bran biscuits, substitute 1 cup oat bran for the rice
 bran and apple fiber.
