Combine the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a fork or pastry blender, cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk, just enough to moisten the dry ingredients. Shape the dough into a ball. On a floured board, knead the dough lightly, turning it over about 10 times. Flatten the dough and gently press or roll it to about 1/2" thickness. Cut with a 3" to 4" heart-shaped cookie cutter or round biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 425º for 12 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown. (Yields 4 o 6 shortcakes, depending on size of cutter.)
Combine the water, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the berries. Simmer just until berries are heated through. Serve warm or chilled.
