2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease or line a baking
   sheet with parchment paper. 
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper,
   salt, grated cheese and butter or margarine in a bowl
