Step 1

Heat oven to 220°C, 425°F or gas mark 7 and grease two baking trays.

Step 2

Place margarine and flour in to a bowl and use your finger tips to rib in.

Step 3

Add the cherry's and Marzipan to the mixture and mix in.

Step 4

Add the milk to the mixture and slowly and mix till it forms a dough.

Step 5

Role in to a ball and place on work surfaces with flour lightly spread all over the surfaces before hand.

Step 6

Role out in to a circle and about 1/2 inch (1.5cm) think. Using a cutter of any shape (circle or square work the best) cut out as many scones as you wish.

Step 7

Place on backing tray with 1 inch (2.5ch) gaps between the scones.

Step 8

Put in the oven for 10 - 15 minuets then place on cooling tray to cool and enjoy.

Having butter and cream in the middle makes them even more delicious!
