1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour -- sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 dash cayenne pepper

Preparation / Directions:

* 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.
