- 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
- 3 tablespoons cold water
How to Make It
Combine flour and baking powder. Cut in cheese and butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle water evenly over flour mixture; stir with a fork until ingredients are moistened. Shape into a ball.
Use a cookie press to shape dough into 2 1/2-inch long strips, following manufacturer's instructions, or roll dough to 1/8- inch thickness on a lightly floured surface, and cut into 2 1/2- x 1/2-inch strips.
Place strips on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until crisp. Place on wire racks to cool.
