    Scones. I could be wrong seeing as I've never been to the UK though.

    This has been an issue for me for quite some time :tongue:

    It appears that a 'biscuit' is somewhere between a dumpling and a scone - but we do not actually have an equivilent so the simple answer is we do not call your biscuits anything because they do not exist over here.

    Now what I would like to know is why you all over there are so obsessed with the french? Calling chips FRENCH fries and calling Eggy Bread FRENCH toast - what is the deal? :bleh:

    OH and while we are at it - why do some of you refer to pizzas as pies? :screwloose:

    i was talking to a whelsh person and she mentioned a cobbler. Now to us a cobbler is like an open top american pie. i was like whaaaa, but apparently its like a more dense scone? that would be a buiscuit :p

    i dont know why we are so french :p

    so if pie is pizza, then what do you call pizza? the flatbread with tomato saugh and pepperoni and cheese on it? :eek:hmy:
