In the 1980's I lived in Little Rock, Arkansas for 6 years.  In the 'Heights', a quaint neighborhood of homes build mostly in the 1940's, there were and are still some delightful shops and cafes.  One of those was 'A Very Special Tea Room', a tiny place run by two very fine caterers.   Cheese Biscuits were served with every dish at the tea room.  A Very Special Tea Room is no longer there, but fortunately for us the ladies wrote a cookbook.

From A Very Special Tea Room

1 cup margarine, softened
1/2 pound cheddar cheese, grated
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Tabasco sauce to taste
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Mix margarine and cheese.  Add flour, salt, cayenne pepper and Tabasco sauce.  Stir in cereal.  Roll into small balls and place on a ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten each ball with a fork.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until crisp.  Store in air-tight container.  The biscuits can be baked and frozen.
