Pepperoni Pizza Scones

Have I got an easy and delicious dinner or snack idea for you today! Pepperoni Pizza Scones! Basically, this is a biscuit filled with garlic, pepperoni, mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Are you drooling yet? Oh mama. Tasty little devils, these are! They are light and fluffy, tender, salty, sweet, crispy, creamy and everything else you could imagine. But then, take a scone and dip in marinara?! Heaven help me. I’m craving these as I type. That usually happens when I write a blog post. Darn stomach.

The thing I love about these is how darn easy they are, especially if you’re using a stand mixer! Pour all your dry ingredients into the bowl and stir. Combine the butter, cheeses and pepperoni into the mix and then moisten the whole lot up with milk. That’s the dough! Then you could scoop these suckers out for more of a biscuit, or do what I did and squish the dough in between two sheets of floured wax paper. Cut it into triangles and bake. {I didn’t write this in the recipe, but be sure to take in a few deep breaths while they are baking because your kitchen will smell WONDERFUL!!} Hardly any clean up {love that!} and they look real purdy comin’ out of the oven. Who can resist a beautifully golden cheese and pepperoni filled scone? Hopefully not you!

Give these a whirl this weekend! They will get gobbled up, guaranteed! These didn’t have a chance here- they were gone under 24 hours :)

Have a great weekend!

    These look super delicious! For a moment I thought they were the garlic cheese biscuits from Red Lobster (they look quite similar from the photo) and then I saw the pepperoni. A must try! I wonder if this is the same as the biscuits just minus the pepperoni?
