Newman's Own Organic Review & Giveaway Hop


Coupon Savvy Sarah excited to be part of our second Food Fun Hop blog event hosted by Shy Babies & Little Inspiration. The sponsor of this event is Newman's Own Organics (NOO)

  
My family and I recently received a few of Newman's Own Organics dried fruits to try out!! We opened the Apples first - they are moist and delicious with great flavor!! The Berry Blend was perfect in our berry muffins we made!! I tested out their NOO's Cranberries in a delicious recipe I came up with: 


Cranberry Orange Scones
Serves 8

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 cup powdered sugar
2 -3 tablespoons orange juice 

Preheat oven to 400F. Mix together flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cranberries and orange peel. In a small bowl, mix buttermilk and egg; add to dry ingredients all at once, stirring until mixture is just moistened. On a floured board, knead gently a few times, but not too much. Form into a patty on an ungreased cookie sheet; cut into 8 wedges with a knife but do not move it. Bake for 15-25 minutes or until light golden. Mix together powdered sugar and orange juice into a glaze; drizzle over scones. Separate scones and serve warm.
