  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Cut in margarine until the mixture is the consistency of large grains of sand. I like to use my hands to rub the margarine into the flour. Stir in poppy seeds, lemon zest and lemon juice. Combine the soy milk and water, and gradually stir into the dry ingredients until the batter is moistened, but still thick like biscuit dough. You may not need all of the liquid.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup sized plops of batter onto the greased baking sheet so they are about 3 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes the preheated oven, until golden.

These are delicious and I loved the consistency. I didn't have any lemons on hand so I used an orange and they turned out great. Thanks! I have already made 2 batches this week! They also taste ...

This recipe is extremely flawed. The "dough" all but turns to liquid on the cookie sheet, and I ended up with batter all over the bottom of my oven. Retest this recipe!

i don't know what happened, but the scones didn't hold their shape at all. in fact, they went out over the edge of the cookie sheet and burned on the bottom of the oven. altogether disapointin...
