  • 2 cups unbleached flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped small
  • 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Butter a cookie sheet or baking stone and set aside.
