K9medic,

Sorry, another of those language problems. A biscuit in America is a baking soda leavened bread baked in the oven. Similar to these other things we are talking about (Bannock, etc.). Those things you call biscuits we call cookies. Now I understand the problem. NOOOO I would not put gravy on a Hobnob.

The best,

Jerry

Possibly, but maybe not smile. Up here at least (Canada) scones have sugar while biscuits don't. A scone would be a stand-alone breakfast item, or something to have with your coffee or tea, while biscuits are usually had along with a meal (especially soup or stew).

Over here Scones can be sweet or savoury, depending what you add to them. Usualy we have them as afternoon tea though, not for breakfast.

We have scones in the US. They are in my experience identical to UK scones. They are most often a breakfast item here.

Biscuit comparison

I whole heartedly agree about adding gravy. Its a waste of a good biscuit. Much better to split a hot one & add butter.

UTAlumnus, The only biscuit wasted is a biscuit uneaten.
I have biscuits with sausage gravy. Heaven on earth.
Though if I have too many I'll be in heaven for real.
