What exactly is a biscuit in the US? -
In Europe a biscuit is what you call a cookie -so what is a biscuit?
In the US, a biscuit is a crunchy treat for dogs. It can also be a baked, crumbly roll-like food that we eat with breakfast.
In North America a "biscuit" is a small quick bread that is made with flour, butter (or lard or shortening), baking powder (soda), milk (buttermilk), eggs, and sometimes a small amount of granulated white sugar. A perfect biscuit, in my mind, should have a golden brown crusty top and bottom and when you split it in half it should be soft and flaky and moist enough to absorb a pat of butter, which is absolutely necessary.
