What's the difference between a scone and a biscuit?
I love biscuits, well, really anything with tons of carbs. I'm a carb girl, and I thank my mother for giving me the metabolism to eat them without having to worry too much. As I was making them, I realized, I'm not going to flour a surface and roll these out and cut them, I'm tearing this dough apart and baking them (I'm more of a guesstimate kind of person). So when a southern friend of mine came over and asked if these (lopsided) baked goods were scones, I thought out-loud, "huh, they kind of look like scones, don't they?" and you know what that means, yep, lets #googleit
So what I've found is generally speaking, it has to do with eggs. Scones have them, biscuits don't. Now, it really does depend on who you ask. If you're talking to a person from the UK (or a source with UK origins) you'll get that scones are the U.S. version of biscuits and biscuits are the US version of cookies... but since I live in the U.S.A. I went with the source eatingwell.com and they said it has to do with eggs. They also seem to have a decent amount of information and included some scone recipes... though I haven't tried any...yet.
