More correctly called 'biscuits' in British English. The tangled web of language goes something like this, as I understand it:

- What they call cookies, we call biscuits
- What we call cookies, they call cookies
- What they call biscuits, we call scones
- What they call scones is simply an abomination...
let's not move onto what they call beer ...

or football for that matter.
