Truly a great scone recipe, but PLEASE... replace the margarine with butter. I think this really must be an error on the submitters part, because it is virtually impossible to make a true scone out of margarine. My UK cousins would just say "EW" at the thought. However, if you replace with butter and don't over-knead the dough, you should be fine. Any crumbs that are left in the bowl, just pat on the scone. Also, not sure where cutting them out with a bisquit cutter came from, but I generally do it the British/Scottish way and make a large 6" circle and score it in 'pie' pieces. That is the only way I have ever seen them when I've been in the British Isles. Granted, there are the 'factory' scones that are in shapes, but ... just sayin'...
