  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. With a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in the cold butter into the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the milk and stir with a fork until the dough holds together.
  5. Gather dough into a ball, then divide into 4 equal portions; lightly knead each portion 15 strokes.
  6. On a lightly-floured board roll out one of the portions to 1/4 inch thick, sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheddar, then fold dough in half and roll it back out to 1/4-inch thick and about 6 inches wide.
  7. Cut the cheesed dough crosswise into 1/2-inch strips, tie each into a loose knot, and place on a non-stick or lightly sprayed baking sheet 1 inch apart from each other; sprinkle with cayenne pepper to taste.
  8. Bake at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes.
  9. Repeat the steps to add the cheese to the dough, cutting into strips, tying, and baking with the other 3 portions of dough.
