I think it depends on who makes the scones, they can look very similar to biscuits.

This is the scone that Americans see.




Our scones tend to be almost triagular, and often are not plain.....the pic above is a chocolate cherry scone.


This is a plain scone, from the UK.




This looks very similiar to our biscuits, which are below.





the triangular scones first pictured above are served room temperature, usually.

The biscuits just above are served warm, are light and flakey, and can be pulled apart easily.

The biscuits look yummi!
If they're light and flakey there's probably quite a lot of butter in them.


The variety of scones we usually have here tends to be a bit dry, so probably not quite the same.
They were very popular in the 70s, I don't actually think I've had them since then.

The were always plain, no such thing as chocolate or cherries in the dough.

They're always triangular, looked like this before cut:

I am still working through all the recipes I wanted to make for the holidays! Tonight I am making Persimmon Flans with whipped bourbon honey topping. I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel...

Take a bowl of hot turkey broth with the flavorings of your choice and add a couple of spoonfuls of creamed corn. Voila...instant chowder! Also works with creamed peas, celery or green beans.

I don't do anything unique with the leftovers, I just reheat and eat.

Me too.  It's nice to just poke buttons on the microwave then watch TV with the ever hopeful whippet.

I had more leftover turkey this year than usual, even though I sent everyone home with some.

So, I made a turkey pot pie last night.  Chopped up turkey breast meat, added potatoes, carrots, celery and leeks (I don't like peas). 
Then, made a sauce velouté, really just a roux with chicken broth, enriched it with leftover gravy.
A frozen puff pastry sheet on top and done!
