Corn Cheddar Cheese Scones

Some may call these Scones, others will refer to them as Biscuits. I've done so much research to try and explain the difference. I conclude that they are not the same without going into detail. The easiest explanation could be that Biscuits can, or should be flaky, and Scones can be dense. So........ here's a delicious recipe for.........?
