Cheese and Chilli bites

Third of the month long Marathon cooking with ABC theme. Third day we have to cook with letter C. For letter C I thought of making some cup cakes with cornmeal. When I was checking my bookmarked recipe s I find Basil crackers recipe from Gayatri. I made those basil crackers once they came out so well really crisp. Thank you so much for the recipe Gayathri, my Dad enjoyed them with his evening chai.
cheese bites                                                                    Now I got a chance to give a twist to this bites with cheese. But only with cheese they taste very light, so I added some red chilli flakes to the dough to make the cheese bites little spicy. For this I used wheat flour, and gave a bite size to make them more interesting. 
Here is my recipe for the day C for Cheese and chillies
INGREDIENTS:---
Wheat flour  ----   3/4 cup (you can use all purpose flour also)
Cheddar cheese  ----   1 and half cup (grated)
Yeast   -----  3/4 tea sp
Baking powder  ---- 1/4 tea sp
Sugar  ----- 1/4 tea sp
Salt a bug pinch
Milk   -----   2 tea sp
Butter  ----  2 tea sp
Red chilli flakes ---  1/2 tea sp
                                                      

METHOD:--
1. Preheat the oven at 200Degree C, grease baking sheet and set a side.
2. Place grated cheese, flour, yeast, baking powder, butter, sugar, salt red chilli flakes in to a food processor and pulse until it turns in to coarse crumbs.
3. Now add milk and run the food processor till the dough forms.
4. Take out the dough and form it like a big ball.
5. Now flatten the dough on a floured surface.
6. Roll out the dough in to 1/8 inch thick rectangle.
7. Cut the crackers with a knife or a pizza cutter in to a one inch squares, poke a hole in the center with a toothpick.
8. Transfer the cracker in to a prepared baking sheet leaving a little space in between each cracker.
9. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges start  brown.
10. Remove from oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
Store in a airtight container..
