These are softer and tastier than cheez it crackers. They are great warm or cold. I like to eat them right out of the oven with cider!

    Sift flour three times with salt and cayenne pepper. ( I omit the cayenne).
  2. Add grated cheddar to flour. Melt butter and allow to cool a bit. Mix butter with other ingredients to form a stiff dough.
  3. Roll on lightly floured waxed paper in a 1/4 thick rectangle.
  4. Cut dough into strips that are approx. 1/2 wide and 4 inches long. Bake for 15 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets.
