2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbl. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
5 Tbl. butter
1/4 cup oil (I used Canola)
1/3 cup milk
1 3/4 cups finely grated cheese (Optional)
1/4 tsp. taste dry mustard (Optional with cheese)

Place the baking sheet in oven and preheat to 450.
Sift measured flour twice with baking powder, salt, and mustard (Optional with cheese).
Add butter to flour mixture and blend thoroughly.
Make a well in center and stir in milk and oil.
Add cheese (Optional) then mix with fork until ingredients form a soft dough.
Turn out onto a floured board and knead very lightly to make a smooth dough.
Roll out with rolling pin to approximately 3/4 inch thick. Stamp out with 2 inch cookie cutter or cut into triangles with a sharp knife. Lightly knead together any trimmings and roll and stamp out again.
Lift with a spatula onto the HOT baking sheet, placing 1 inch apart. Brush only the tops with milk.
Bake toward top of oven for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Lift onto a wire rack with spatula to cool.
