 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            All-purpose flour
      1/4   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Dry mustard
      1/2   ts           Hot chili powder
    1       lg           Pinch cayenne pepper
      1/4   c            Butter or margarine
      1/2   c            Finely grated Cheddar cheese
    1                    Egg, beaten
    1       tb           Cold water
    1       tb           Sesame seeds
    1       tb           Poppy seeds
 
   Preheat oven to 400'F. (205'C.). Sift flour, salt and
   spices into a bowl.
   
   Cut in butter finely until mixture resembles
   breadcrumbs. Add grated cheese and mix well. Mix egg
   with cold water. Add 2 tablespoons of egg mixture to
   cheese mixture and mix to form a fairly stiff dough.
   Knead gently on a lightly floured surface. Roll out
   dough to a 12x6 rectangle. Trim edges. Cut in half
   lengthwise and transfer to a baking sheet.
   
   Breush each half with remaining egg mixture. Sprinkle
   1 half with sesame seeds and the other half with poppy
   seeds. Cut each half in 10 triangles and separate
   slightly to prevent sticking. Bake in preheated oven
   10-12 minutes or until light golden and cooked
   through. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight
   container up to 2 weeks.
