Directions:
Grate the cheese and allow it to stand until it has reached room temperature. In a bowl cream the butter with the salt, cayenne, and garlic powder until the mixture is combined well. Add the cheddar, and beat the mixture until it is smooth. Beat in the flour, a little at a time, transfer the dough to a cookie press fitted with the star tip, and pipe 2-inch lengths of it onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake 4 to 5 minutes at 300F. Or, alternatively, mix all ingredients well (finely chopped toasted pecans make a delicious addition!) and form into small balls about 3/4 inch in diameter. Flatten the balls somewhat, place them on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350F oven for 15 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to cool.
