Biscuits and scones are kissing cousins. I'm guessing since these are barely sweetened, they've been called biscuits. We Americans like our scones sweet!

"biscuits" to Europeans tends to encompass a broader group that may include crackers, some types of cookies, scones, and what we think of as an actual biscuit, which hla correctly calls kissing cousins to scones.
