There are three new premium specialty flours that White Lily just launched; Wheat with crushed White Grape Seed, Wheat with crushed Red Grape Seed and then an All-Purpose Wheat. They are a lot of fun to use and the tastes are unexpectedly good and I was surprised I would love them so much. I can be skeptical of new products. Especially when my tried and true works perfectly.
But these flours really do add a little something special and unique to your baked goods. And you know what one of my favorite features about these were? They have resealable bags. Genius! Why hasn’t that happened sooner? I get excited over packaging that makes my life easier. Sometimes I wish I had access to the marketing and test kitchen folks for companies to tell them what would work and what wouldn’t in a home kitchen. You know what I’m saying? Now, who do we need to talk to at the powdered sugar companies? Because those flimsy plastic sugar bags are a nightmare! Can I get an “Amen”?
Cheddar and Chive Drop Biscuits
Anyhow, where was I? Drop biscuits are one of the simplest forms of biscuits to make. You don’t have to roll out dough or even use a biscuit cutter. You just whip it up and scoop it out. And the White Lily Flour really does all the work. White Lily is made with a soft winter wheat and that is the key to it’s uniqueness.
