Tuesdays with Dorie: Sweet Cream Biscuits

This week's pick has done absolutely nothing to clear up my confusion about the difference between biscuits and scones. The recipe for these Sweet Cream Biscuits is all but identical to the cream scones I have made since I was little.

Still, whatever you call them they are certainly tasty and one of my favourite things to eat. Whenever I go out for coffee, while the others have a big piece of cake, I always get a sultana scone with jam and cream. Yum!

As usual (I really don't have 'the touch') my biscuits were pretty flat and crumbly but they had a lovely flavour. Perfect with a smear of butter and a big dollop of strawberry jam.

Thanks to Melissa of Love at First Bite for this week's pick. They were easy, tasty and inexpensive. And will definitely be made again :-)

(Yep this post is even shorter than usual but I'm worn out after a big weekend. Check out Oscar's 1st birthday celebrations here!)

  2. i loved how these were so quick and easy too!

    not every day we have a recipe that the longest step is letting the oven get to 425 degrees :).

    i topped mine with agave peach raspberry jam and loved them!

  3. Good to hear that other people, too, have the scones-biscuit-confusion. Up to now I had the feeling that scones mostly include eggs, and that it is much about the shape, but I might be wrong.

  4. Your crust looks so good. Almost like a sugar cookie.

  6. These look so good! I always thought scones had more sugar than biscuits? Whatever, I like them both and yours look extra yummy.

  7. Biscuits are supposed to be fluffy and bread like but soft on the inside and firm on the outside, not like a scone at all. But I've had many biscuits turn out like scones so I can see the dilemma :)

    They look delicious either way :)
