Biscuit-Topped Casserole

How can I keep biscuits that are placed on top of a casserole from getting doughy? —L.S., Windsor, Vermont

It's true—biscuits that are baked on top of casseroles, stews and potpies can easily become doughy on the bottom. For better heat circulation, use a shallow baking dish and arrange biscuits so they are not touching each other. If you’re using refrigerated biscuit dough, bake your dish at the same temperature or higher than the directions call for on the package. Be sure to add the biscuits near the end of the casserole’s baking time, when the mixture is hot and bubbly.
