Difference between Cookies and Biscuits

Though we use the term cookie and biscuit as synonym, they differ.

  • Cookies are generally chewy and Biscuits are more firm.
  • Cookies contain more sugar than biscuits.
  • Usually the cookies will melt in mouth but the biscuits donot.

Here I am making this recipe for A to Z recipe Challenge where the bloggers choose an  ingredient  with an alphabet and make a recipe out of this. This month it is letter ‘O’ and I choose Oats as an ingredient.

Role of main ingredients

Butter

It acts as a leavening agent. It gives a nice flavour to the biscuit and adds moisture.

Sugar

Sugar can be used in granulated or powdered form. In some, biscuits both the types are used. They give sweetness to the biscuits. Along with butter they give tenderness to the biscuits.

Baking powder

Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods. It works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into the dough through an acid-base reaction and thus leavening the mixture.

Very nice and healthy biscuits made with oats. Can I replace maida with whole wheat flour ?

I always presumed that the difference between a cookie and biscuit was not in the texture but the difference in what the English and US calls them. Learnt something new today. As for the oats biscuit, they simply look very inviting. Would love to have a couple and dunk them in milk.

Such lovely, crispy cookies! The oatmeal must have given them a beautiful texture, I’m sure. The addition of dessicated coconut is interesting too. I’d love to lay my hands on that platter, for sure! 🙂

such cute little biscuits, Niranjana… truly a kids delight.. and loving the detailed write up too…

The Oats biscuits are a perfect accompaniment to tea or coffee. I personally don’t enjoy soft centre cookies or moist cookies and love the kind you have baked. For me biscuits or cookies should be crisp – the kind we can dunk in a tea cup and enjoy.

I have tried making biscuits with oats and whole wheat flour. I love your addition of desiccated coconut. It would have been so flavorful !

Good to know that the difference in cookies and biscuits is not just the name. I assumed it what the British and Americans call them. Loved the oats cookies especially the fact that the oats are not hidden.
