Recipe shared by our very own Calvary Couponer, Morado!

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

3/4 cup margarine

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I omit this)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup water


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). 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 and mix until well combined. Add water a little bit at a time to make a very stiff dough.
3. On a lightly floured surface, roll pieces of the dough into just slightly thicker than pencil shaped sticks. Cut sticks into 4 to 5 inch lengths. Arrange the pieces on the baking sheet.
4. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 minutes or until browned.
