    I just love their buttermilk biscuits! But one thing I don't like that Americans seem to be obsessed with are those big slimy gerkins (or 'pickles' as the americans call them).

    Biscuits in the UK tend to be crunchy, whereas cookies in UK and USA tend to be soft/soggy.
    I hate soggy biscuits unless dunking ginger nuts in my coffee

    Just for our US friends to explain some of our quirks, the difference between biscuits and cakes in the UK is that biscuits when stale go soft and cake when stale dries out and becomes dry and hard.

    I'm lucky in that my SIL is from Boston and, having lived on his own for a few years before marrying my daughter, loves to cook and bake. So any time I get a hankering for corn bread or such I know I can get some baked to order fairly quickly
