Valentine For A Friend…Heart-Shaped Scones From White Lily Flour

Happy Valentine’s Day…

My good buddy and “sounding board”, Hils,  loves my biscuit scones.  She is quite a disciplined eater, but will indulge when it’s worth it.  These scones are worth it…top with a tart lemon curd and you’ve got the perfect, decadent pairing.  I made heart-shapes and used White Lily Flour …which we discovered at Surfas.  The signage claimed that this soft winter wheat, light flour is what makes Southern biscuits and Southern baking sooooo wonderful.  The flour is really fine..feels a bit like cornstarch and certainly made an outstanding scone.  I love using this product.  We baked a batch  with all-purpose flour too and tasted them against the ones made with White Lily…both were excellent, the Southern scone was lighter and a bit flakier, very nice.  There was a bit more texture to the ones made with my general, all-purpose flour (which my husband actually preferred…and he’s the Southern one ?!*#  🙂 ).   We will bake with the White Lily a few more times and let you know our findings.

  1. They look beautiful, Linda, what a lovely gift. What could be better than a freshly baked scone and a nice cup of tea on Valentine’s (or any other) day? I know what you mean about some flours, the silkiness they have is a joy to delve your hands into. I should try out some different flours here, I usually just get the same one from the supermarket out of habit.

    • Thanks Lorna…I am the same as you, usually just pick up a good brand of all purpose flour at the local grocery store, using this White Lily Southern flour has me thinking I might want to branch out a bit more and try other flours. Having a fresh scone is such a treat for me (as I can only have a little one now and then in order to keep my diabetes at bay)…so when I get a great scone, it is even better.

  2. I loved this scone!! Not sure I am a fair judge though because receiving your heart-shaped scones is such a special and meaningful gift, they really couldn’t taste anything less than heavenly. Thank you, Linda! <3

    • As long as you enjoyed them…I am happy 🙂
      Hopefully you left one or two for T.
