Go Ahead, Bake My Day: Vegan Strawberry Scones Forever

I dehydrated a batch of strawberries, but it wasn't quite what I was after. So rather than wasting them, I put them into a scone. Have these with a dollop of sweetened vegan cream cheese. Listening to "Strawberry Fields Forever" doesn't make them taste any better, but having a scone is certainly British enough to warrant having a splendid afternoon tea in a nice frock. Maybe make a cucumber sandwich or two to go with them?

3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
100gr dairy free margarine
2 tablespoons golden syrup
50 gr dried strawberries
approx 1/2 cup soymilk, water, or ricemilk

Preheat the oven to 180C.
Sift together flour and baking powder.
Rub in margarine, to the consistency of coarse breadcrumbs.
Add chopped dried strawberries, and mix through.
Add soymilk, just enough to draw the mixture together to a soft dough, you don't want it runny, and form the scones quickly, not handling the dough more than necessary. I get 10 smaller scones from this.
Put in a greased tin with sides, not on a tray, just touching.
Bake for approx  20 minutes.
