"These are GREAT. Most scone recipes I've tried involve a lot of trouble mixing the butter into the dough, but since you sautee the onions in it here, it's already melted and mixes easily. This is almost no work and produces a great scone. By the way, I used butter instead of margarine."

I've seen similar recipes using black pepper, but this seems much more simple than recipes I've seen previously. I will post comments after I've tried it. I concur - use butter not margarine.
