3 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups flour
3 teaspoons salt

This recipe is based on 6 cups of shredded cheese. Use 1
teaspoon of baking powder and 1 cup of flour for every 2 cups of shredded cheese you shred to assure accuracy. Grate the cheese finely. Mix the above ingredients. Add water to moisten if dough is to sticky to handle. Make balls the size of baseballs, then roll them out very thinly. Cut in strips and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375° until brown about 15 minutes.

Sprinkle lightly with Parmesan cheese if desired.
