Baking and Testing for Doneness
Bake biscuits, scones and shortcakes in a preheated hot oven (425°F to 450°F) until they have risen and are golden brown. Drop biscuits will not rise as high as other biscuits. The amount of time they bake depends on the size of each, the type of baking pan or cookie sheet they're baked on and whether they are baked separated or close together. Follow recipe directions.
