We are always looking for quick snacks for the children that they will enjoy. They both love fruit, but it’s hard to store for a long period of time, especially during the summer. We recently discovered some dried fruits from Bella Viva Orchards that were the perfect solution.
We received a box of the most delicious looking assortment of dried fruits. I rarely see whole fruit look like this. The California White Apricots and the Dried White Nectarines were juicy and plump, while the Dried Tart Apple Rings were large and crisp. It goes without saying that the kids attacked the box immediately.
We had some fruit left over, so I decided to make some scones with the apples, a perfect accompaniment to our Scotland study this week. I found a traditonal Scottish scones recipe online and altered it for the ingredients we had on hand. For this recipe, we needed:
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- granulated sugar
- almond milk
- dried apple rings
After I added the apples, I pat out the dough onto a greased cookie sheet. I don’t like to roll dough when I can help it. Too messy! Next I scored the round eight times.
After baking at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, we had a tasty breakfast of apple scones and organic jam. They were so tasty; the apples added the perfect texture to one of my favorite treats. The kids loved them as well–there were no leftovers!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
