My husband is trying to tell me that oreos are not cookies. They are not biscuits, because they have icing on them. He said just now that they are "little round candy bar things".

This is the person who is responsible for my post-surgery care. Send help. Also, what is a cookie?

That is unfair, I concluded at the end of my line of thought that Oreos are two cookies, with icing holding them together.

I was really hoping this thread would be about a pun to do with clearing internet cookies.

In the UK a cookie is a chocolate chip thing - the ones Cookie Monster eats. A biscuit is everything else xD

i geniunely believed this would involve some kind of transparent cookie and am now sorely disappointed :(

The following is a cookie. Everything else is a biscuit. Also, I will not hear of any Americans referring to scones as biscuits.

Me too. I feel your pain. Have a sympathy hug. :squeeze:

Formy says that Oreos are cookies. I think they're probably biscuits, but I'm not completely sure.


Also, I will not hear of any Americans referring to scones as biscuits.

NO. Bad Americans. :nonono:

I said that they're barely cookies, I have no idea to be honest. They're called a cookie on Wikipedia, and that never lies right?

Cookies are a subset of biscuits, so it is definitely a biscuit, and MIGHT also be a cookie.

A sidenote in regard to scones: they are NOT biscuits. End of. The REAL question is whether it's pronounced with an 'oh' sound - like in "own" - or an 'o' sound - like in "gone".

Probably because an American person wrote the wiki entry!

A scone is a scone.

An oreo is either a, singular, cookie or two cookies held together with sweetened lard.

Either way, no thanks.

See my declaration of war upon in the scone thread when you have questions about drone strikes upon your person.

An Oreo is a sandwich cookie.

EDIT: A cookie is a small, ultra-portable snack that is usually sweet and round, sometimes crispy or crunchy and sometimes soft or chewy. They sometimes have toppings. They are made with flour, eggs, brown or white sugar, a little bit of leavening and a fat like butter, lard or shortening. Some people use oil, but that's a bad plan imho. Too cakey.

I put Jack Daniels in my chocolate chip cookies.

What Americans refer to as cookies are what Brits refer to as biscuits.

Oreos are cream filled cookies in the US, while in the UK they are cream filled biscuits.

What Americans call biscuits are these savory doughy things that we put sausage & egg in or cover in a grotesque gravy. I'm sure Brits would refer to these as an abomination while eating something made of bone marrow.

Scones are scones, no matter where you are.

I don't care what it is, it is a divine gift from the heavens and every time I eat one I feel like I'm swapping saliva with an angel.

It's a biscuit. With icing sandwiched between two pieces of biscuit. A biscuitwich.
