    This thread is amusing. ^_^

    I cooked dinner tonight for me and my sister. I haven't cooked in quite a while. Chicken soup and homemade biscuits. I wish I knew a long time ago how quick and easy biscuits are. Are any of us geeks also fans of biscuits?

    Yeah see, I remember these things. Good to know I haven't completely lost my faculties.

    Haha, it's funny how people just assume things in the absence of evidence. Let's smash the stereotypes! There are lots great gals hangin out at the Cantina. Everyone is always learning, isn't that part of why we come here?

    You are such a sweetheart Lighty, x.

    Biscuits are scones, right? We call cookies biscuits. My American is getting good, yeah? I make scones all the time, so quick and delicious for when the girls drop over for coffee.

    Best Ever Scone Recipe

    3 cups self-raising flour, pinch of salt, 1 cup cream ,1 cup lemonade.

    Method

    Step 1
    Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Pour in cream and lemonade.

    Step 2
    Mix with a knife until mixture comes together. Turn dough onto a lightly-floured surface. Knead gently until smooth and pliable.

    Step 3
    Cut scones into rounds using a scone cutter. Arrange close together on a lightly greased tray.

    Step 4
    Bake in a very hot oven (220°C) for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Serve with jam and cream. Freeze if desired.

    scone and biscuit are similar, but a true southern biscuit is fluffy and soft and eaten with breakfast foods or gravies and butter/jam whereas scones in america are typically more dense and used for dipping or paired with coffee/tea as a standalone brunchy item. i'm totally generalizing, though.

    this recipe looks great and is definitely a biscuit by american standards ~ hahaha!

    Yes, the American equivalent of scones :)

    Up north, biscuits have a different quality. I miss southern biscuits, but these turned out rather well.

    I will have to try these when I can eat carbs again. Really trying to cut weight for summer.

    The only scones I have ever tried came from Starbucks. I love their Chai tea, but hate their coffee. tastes too much like dirt. not in a good way.

    Mmm, sounds yummy. I love scones (probably because of all the cream)! I like these recipes that you don't have to worry about rolling out.

    And then there's those flaky Southern American biscuits. With butter...

    Do you think we should rename this thread The Cholesterol Thread? Just wondering. :D

    Love biscuits. We have a style here where they are very dense, beaten with a hammer, but you don't see them as much anymore. I whip them up easy often, the typical style, when I don't already have pillsbury ones. They are pretty simple.

    Haha, gold. I'm a massive coffee snob, all my friends think I will never survive the states, as they reckon it's impossible to find decent coffee.
