Directions
1.
In a large mixing bowl combine shredded cheese and butter; bring to room temperature (about 1 hour). Beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Stir in flour, salt, and red pepper. Divide the dough in half. Shape dough into two 7-inch logs. Wrap and chill logs for at least 1 hour.
