Well, let me tell you they are not the same. Growing up in my house, biscuits were fluffy, buttery little bites of heaven. They appeared at breakfast most often. Covered in butter and jam or holding bacon, egg, and cheese together as a sandwich. Biscuits can hold everything from bbq to the sweetest of jams and everything in between. Southern-style biscuits are an essential part of any decent cooks repertoire, and there are countless ways to make them.

Upon moving to England, people kept asking if I wanted a biscuit with my tea. Turns out I like those biscuits too. However, these are not fluffy, buttery, bits of heaven. They are instead crispy twice-baked sugary cookies perfect for dunking in a cup of tea. Now I haven't tried my hand at making my own biscuits of this kind, but there is a first time for everything.
As I was thinking about names for my blog, Biscuits and Biscuits seemed appropriate. One Southern, one English, and I love them equally. These two types of biscuits appeared to define the two worlds I straddle of being southern and adapting to my new home.
It's an adventure y'all.
