Until watching Brenda Gantt’s biscuit making video recently, I was perfectly happy with my biscuits. Today, I’ve been obsessing about how I could get White Lily self rising flour. I checked their website to see where I could buy it within 50 miles of here. Nowhere! I can buy it in Lake Charles, LA or Owensboro, KY according to the website. Walmart’s website shows it for $2.78 for a 5 pound bag but they are out and may have been out for quite a while or . . maybe they ran out yesterday and that’s the price it will be when they get more in stock. I can’t wait. I have to have it NOW.
Vince and I had this discussion:
Vince: What’s so great about White Lily flour?
Me: I don’t know but everything I’ve read today says it’s the best.
Vince: Your biscuits are great. I love your biscuits.
Me: Maybe they could be better.
Vince: What difference does it make if they’re already really good?
Me: Because I’ve gone over that cliff and I HAVE to get some White Lily self rising flour to try.
Seriously, I found this article on Cooking on the Side. She has a lot of recipes that look good but it looks like the blog is no longer being updated. Anyway, I printed that biscuit recipe, which looks very similar to Brenda Gantt’s recipe.
Several sellers have it on Amazon but it’s pretty expensive.
I found it online but to get a decent price, I had to get 8 bags and the bleached was on sale. I would have preferred unbleached but for this batch, bleached will have to work. I’ll use it for cookies during the holidays too so I didn’t mind buying 8 bags of it. There will be some biscuit and cooking baking in my future!
