Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small skillet, cook the onions in 1/4 cup margarine until crisp-tender; set aside and cool slightly. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper; blend well. Add the whipping cream, egg and onions; stir just until moistened. On a floured surface, gently knead the dough 5 or 6 times. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet; press into an 8-inch circle, about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges; separate slightly. Bake for 12 to 16 minutes, or until very light brown. Brush with melted margarine. Cut into wedges; serve warm.
