Heat oven to 220°C, 425°F or gas mark 7 and grease two baking trays.
Place margarine and flour in to a bowl and use your finger tips to rib in.
Add the cherry's and Marzipan to the mixture and mix in.
Add the milk to the mixture and slowly and mix till it forms a dough.
Role in to a ball and place on work surfaces with flour lightly spread all over the surfaces before hand.
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.
Place on backing tray with 1 inch (2.5ch) gaps between the scones.
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!
