I haven't found any info on this in the library.

I love "Grands Biscuits". My oven burns the bottom every time. I've tried setting the pan on top of another pan but that didn't work either.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks,
Jamie

Jaime,
I use my  Pampered Chef pizza stone as a cookie sheet.  It saves the bottoms.

I guess that answers the question about whether the PC pizza stone goes in the motorhome or in the yard sale pile.

Jamie,
My stone is a 13 inch.? Pampered Chef makes them in? 15, 13 and 10 inch diameters.? I do not use the rack? it came with inside the oven as it? prohibits my turntable from spinning. (I have the micro/convection combination)

I have also heard of people using a Pyrex pie pan inverted on their? propane oven shelf and then place their cookie? sheet over it to help with the bottom issues.

Our oven did that on a past RV and I purchased a large unglazed floor tile and place it on the bottom of the oven.  ?"Never burned any thing again.  Each time we get a different RV  we buy a new Tile.;  Try it it works.

Would the Pampered Chef pizza stone work the same if you stuck it on the bottom of the oven?? Seems like a good place to store it and if you didn't have to take it out when you turned on the oven to bake biscuits.........

Hmmm, says "Do not use under broiler" which I guess would mean not leaving it on the bottom of the oven since that would put it directly under the flame.

I think it has something to do with heat distribution but I'm not an expert.

The tile acts as a baking stone - capturing heat and releasing it slowly and evenly. It also pulls moisture from the outside of the cookie/biscuit dough, allowing it to crisp.

Right on Tom  Thats the same explaination I recieved.  All I know is it does work.  I used a Glazed one 1st and it cracked but still worked.  Surprised the heck out of me years ago when I 1st heard of it.  After listening to the Boss complain for so long I bought a tile and tried it.  Even tho I forgot it was supposed to be unglazed.

Thanks Shayne. It's essentially the same principle as a "maen", a circular cast iron baking 'stone' used over a gas flame. Also used for baking Welsh cakes

We sure would Shayne - if we were coming to QZ. But we won't be back, for various reasons. Too bad, because they'd also cook over the open fire. Maybe at Moab.
