Chocolate Orange Ricotta Scones |

While scones and biscuits have many similarities and the line between the two is somewhat blurred, there are a few differences I have noticed.

Scones are typically richer, often made with eggs and/or heavy cream. And because of the extra liquid in the dough, scones can be denser and more cake-like, while biscuits are known for being soft and flaky. Both can be either sweet or savory, though biscuits are most known for being savory while scones are sweet.
