 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Grated sharp cheddar cheese
      1/2   c            Flour, part for rolling
    2       tb           Margarine or butter
      1/4   ts           Salt
            pn           Paprika
            pn           Cayenne pepper
    2       tb           Water
 
   Mix all together in a bowl.  Original directions suggested shaping into a
   roll 1 1/2 inch wide, chilling at least 2 hours wrapped in wax paper and
   cutting in thin slices to make 1 dozen or more crackers. This would produce
   neatly shaped crackers, possibly thicker than desired.
   
   By rolling very thin, this amount of dough will make small crackers about
   1/2 inch apart to cover 1 1/2 small cookie sheets. They do puff up while
   baking. May be cut quickly in random small shapes with a plastic knife.
   
   Suggested toppings coarse salt (made them too salty), garlic salt, celery
   salt, curry powder, or freshly ground black pepper. If the dough is very
   dry after rolling, brush tops with water before salting. If it is soft,
   sprinkle lightly and press the salt into the crackers.
   
   Bake 5 minutes at 425 F or until browned.
