Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the butter, cut into small pieces. Rub the butter into flour mixture with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. With a table knife, stir in the cheese and milk to form a soft dough. Form the dough into balls by hand. Cut the dough in to 8 pieces and form each piece into a 1/2 inch thick circle. Place the circles of dough, spaced well apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until they have risen and are golden brown. Serve immediately.
