  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Drop biscuits onto a cookie sheets (use a 1/4 cup measure and space 2 inches apart).
  • Place cookie sheets on 2 oven racks near the center of the oven. Bake biscuits for 12-15 minutes, until they are golden brown, rotating cookie sheets between the upper and lower racks halfway through baking time.
