when travelling i've had some delicious fluffly-textured biscuits. the kind that work so well with either sweet and savoury and turn into flaky crumbles on your tongue.

i've tried the ones at all the coffee chains, at a few bakeries, and at slm. it seems that we prefer a heavier biscuit/scone with a tougher texture. they are mostly sweet and are chock full of blueberry bits or other fillings, but the cakiness is off. tim hortons plain, raisin, or cheese, are all disasters of chewiness - worse than the coffee chains. i've tried the pillsbury tube, and they are bread-like (but nice for what they are when hot out of the oven). even macdonald's usa get it right (p.s. macdonald's canada, bring that breakfast biscuit up here).

i do know how to follow recipes, but before i start experimenting, anyone know where to find good biscuits here?
