I'm so excited to be celebrating the lovely Stephie of Stephie Cooks today!  She is getting hitched to her love in just under a month (eee!), and I was invited along with some other awesome ladies to share the joy and honor this happy couple!  I just wish we could sip mimosa's and discuss details in person. Stephie you are going to be such a beautiful bride!

Stephie and her mom are the sweetest people I've met through this blogging world.  Their comments always make my day and it's been so fun to get to know them through recipes, instagram, etc.  This is such a special time for them, thank you for allowing me to share in your day! 

Now it's time to grab a plate and go around the table picking up some tasty treats.  I've brought these savory, cheesy scones.  The fluffy dough is almost like a biscuit, specked with herbs, garlic and black pepper and Italian cheeses you'll definitely be going back for seconds.  Now, check out the list below for more Bridal Shower fun!!

Four Cheese + Herb Scones


(makes 1 dozen)

2 1/2 cups self rising flour (plus extra for the counter top)
5 tablespoons cold butter cut into cubes
1/2 cup Italian 4 cheese blend (I used asiago, provolone, Fontina, parmesan from Trader Joe's)
1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning blend (I used garlic, oregano, rosemary, thyme)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Place the empty baking sheet in the oven to warm up while the oven preheats.

Using a pastry blender or fork (or your hand) cut the cold butter into the flour until the mixture resembles pea sized crumbs.

Add the cheese, herbs and black pepper, and stir together.  

Slowly pour the milk into the flour mixture, stirring as you go.  The dough will be very wet, that's okay!!

Spread out a generous amount of flour on to your counter.  Scoop the dough out of the mixing bowl and place on the floured surface.  Sprinkle the top of the dough generously with flour.  Fold the dough over itself (kneading it) and shape it into a circle, about 1 inch high.  

Use a circle cookie cutter to cut out the scones, or just cut the circle into even wedges.  Should make about 1 dozen.  Place the scones on the hot cookie sheet with space between them.  Bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.
