  1. In the United Kingdom, the word “biscuit” is used to refer to what we in the United States would call a “cookie”.
  2. White flour, commonly used to bake biscuits, is almost instantly metabolized into sugar.  Biscuits will quickly spike your blood-sugar level.
  3. Mustard is a common condiment to use on biscuits in the south, especially to accompany ham.
  4. Most biscuit recipes call for a healthy dose of butter in the baking process.  Despite this, many people butter their biscuits after they are served as well.
