You might want to consider consolidating all your photos in one thread. You don't really need an individual one for every picture you take.

actually yes. While biscuits are not sweet, more of a side with a meal to put jam, butter or honey on, and look exactly like what you made, scones are sweetened, usually cut in triangles, (sometimes round) sometimes topped with sugar or icing. So biscuits here are more like a bread, while scones are more like something to have with tea or coffee. At least in the USA.

Gotcha,,   I have always made mine round. but I know the ones you mean a round cut almost through and baked in the round.

I some times make the plain ones with cheese or herbs or I have been known to use the same plain dough and drop as little dollops into beef stew, like a dumpling.

Sweet ones yes, to have with jam and cream, thick heavy cream in preference to whipped cream, Devonshire scald cream, yum.... qahtan
