Hungry Hungry Hawks

One of Hillside’s proudest advisories is Ms.Seitz and her students: Isabella Diaz, Nyasia Sackey, Kelsay Young, Jazmyne Kilgore, Emin Ahmetovic, Izaiah Gallant, Sandip Subba, and Naomi Doyle. In the past, Hawk Productions has made the following(to sell): chocolate chip cookies and rice crispy treats. They have also made Halloween brownies for the Halloween dance. Another thing they have made were decorated cookies for the Hala-Day dance. Hawk Productions doesn’t just make goodies for the kids, they also made orange cranberry scones for the Hillside’s staff around the holidays.

Coming Up…

For future products, Hawk Productions would like to make popcorn with toppings.  One more treat that Hawk Productions would like to do is make a product to sell at the Valentine's Day dance. They would not share what they are planning to make….Hmmmm?!?!  Mrs. Seitz’s advisory puts the money they earn selling their delicious treats back into the business to use as a life lesson.  Their total balance is $58.24 at the moment.

Cranberry Orange Scone Recipe

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup sugar plus more for topping

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup(1 stick) cold butter

  • ½ cup fresh cranberries

  • ¾-1 cup heavy cream

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

Orange Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar

  • 3-4 tablespoon orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet pan with parchment paper or a nonstick baking sheet.

For The Scones

Step 1: Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter to the bowl and cut into the flour with a pastry blender until the largest pieces of butter are about the size of a pea and the flour mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cranberries, ¾  cup of heavy cream, orange juice, and orange zest. Press dough together between the palms of your hands. If it doesn’t just hold together, add more heavy cream until it just holds together. Step 2: Pour dough onto a lightly floured counter top or a pastry board. Pat dough into a large round disc, about an inch thick. Cut dough into equal sized wedges  and place onto a prepared baking sheet pan. Melt about 2 tablespoons of butter and brush on top of the dough. Step 3:  Bake scones for 20-25 minutes or until they are just beginning to turn lightly brown.  Remove from the oven.                           

Orange Glaze

Whisk all of the glaze ingredients together in a medium sized bowl until smooth and then drizzle on top of each scone after it has cooled for about five minutes.
