Biscuit question for our USA contingent
clareblues1
Hi to those over the pond!

I've been getting curious about American biscuits which I understand are similar to what we refer to as a scone in the U.K.?

They crop up a couple of times in episodes of Alias Smith and Jones (yes I know! LOL) in that context they formed part of a savoury meal and used rather like bread and dipped in the 'gravy'.

So I'm after a decent recipe I can try with the correct conversion proportions from US measurements like cups to either ounces or kilograms.

I found this one but most of the recipes I've seen so far are for a sweet version than savoury. If any of you have a better one to hand please do point me in the right direction! Cheers!

Yes, an American biscuit is quite like a scone, usually served hot, with butter, or..

In the south for breakfast with a white cream gravy.

Can't really speak for a recipe as I've never made them from scratch, but Pillsbury Grands top my list (if you can get them).

A biscuit is often made of flour, buttermilk and baking soda and mixed and formed into a round. As Brad said, sort of like a scone in texture but not sweet. The recipe you posted is exactly what a typical American biscuit is. Good luck, they are very good with butter and either honey or jam on them. Also they are good in the dish called biscuits and gravy - which are the typical biscuit recipe with a gravy made of ground up sausage meat and a white milk gravy. A typical 'southern' breakfast meal.

There's a humorous saying: Well butter my buns and call me a biscuit- used mostly in the South.
Zil: Oneness must resist the Host.

Cheers guys or should I say pardners? No...probably not LOL Incidentally that saying reminds me a lot of Blackadder or the sort of thing he might say.

My first mystifying encounter with an American biscuit was in Little Women - 'Beth clapped her hands, regardless of the hot biscuit she was holding' (or words to that effect). I couldn't figure out why a biscuit would be hot.

In Little Men, they ate 'squash', which was equally mystifying - as far as I was aware, squash was concentrated juice (orange, lemon, blackcurrant) that you dilute with water to drink.

Do let us know how the biscuits turn out, Clare. I take the easy way out and use Bisquick.
