In North America what we would consider a biscuit, browned and hardened on the outside, but soft on the inside is more akin to that of a scone. These treats are consumed plain and also with butter and jam.

As for what the English would call a "biscuit," this is more similar to that of what we know in North America as a cookie, a sweetened, thin, hardened piece of twice baked flour. The English do have their own version of cookies that are called digestives.

What is the difference between a British biscuit and a cookie?

A British biscuit is usually a little more brittle, rigid and hard than your average run of the mill cookies in the United States.
