Thanks for the cat head biscuit definition, Perry. My dad said he grew up on sawmill gravy and cathead biscuits. He said sawmill gravy was white gravy made with Borden's condensed milk. There were no cows in the sawmill camps. I never thought to ask him what cathead biscuits were. My dad never had a beefsteak until he was fourteen. No fresh beef in sawmill towns either, only salted sowbelly.
It is dark at night, but the Sun will come up and then we can see.

Ran across this today and noticed no Brit had yet answered whether American biscuits were made in England, and if so what they were called.

I stand corrected and have made the necessary adjustments to reflect the correction. I will change the sound file tomorrow and also take the acute off the E so that people can search for this word without having the E acute.

@Perry I don't think we have a direct analog - quick bit of googling shows them to be something like a bread roll but made like a scone? Not something I know of to be honest. Dumplings yes, scones on say a cobbler but nothing quite like what I am seeing.
