 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  Cup           Butter Or Margarine
    1 1/2  Cups          Unbleached Flour; Sifted
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
    1      Teaspoon      Baking Powder
    1      Dash          Cayenne Pepper
    2      Cups          Cheddar; Extra Sharp, *
 
 *     The Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese should be finely grated.
  Stir the dry ingredients into a bowl and then cut in the butter to resemble
 cornmeal.  Blend in the cheddar cheese with a fork until well blended.  Mix
 in the remaining ingredients and shape into 1 1/2 to 2-inch rolls.  Chill
 for 30 to 40 minutes in the refrigerator and then slice each roll into
 slices about 1/4-inch thick.  Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 400
 degrees F for about 10 minutes.  Remove from cookie sheet and let cool.
 Store the cooled crackers in airtight containers in a cool place. They will
 keep for several weeks this way and if you freeze them, they will last
 indefinitely.
