Question:

Thank you for your wonderful website- it is clearly a labor of love. I can never get my biscuits to brown on top before they overcook. I have tried oven temps to 500 degrees, brushing with butter, and even broiling for the last few minutes (this produces an uneven browning). My biscuits taste fine, but just don't have the pretty light golden brown that I am looking for. Any thoughts? - Derryl Millican (3/14/02)

 

Answers:

BAKING BISCUITS - Bake in a preheated 450 degrees F. oven on a lightly greased baking sheet. For a golden crust, use a shiny baking sheet. Dark cookie sheets will cause the biscuits to over-brown on the bottom.

For crusty sides, place the biscuits 1 inch apart.

For soft sides, place them close together.

Brush hot biscuits with melted butter or margarine, if desired.
