  2. Beat with an electric mixer until 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.
  3. Using a knife or a crinkle cutter, cut the cheese logs into 1/4-inch slices. Place slices on ungreased baking sheets. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Makes about 54 crackers.

To Present This Gift...

Cut the paper into a 12-inch square. The larger the square, the larger the cracker holder. Pinpoint the center of the square by prefolding. To do this, bring two opposite sides together to fold the square in half. Unfold the paper and bring the remaining two opposite sides together and fold the paper in half again. Unfold the paper and bring the four corners to the center of the square. Flip this smaller square over and fold all four corners into the center. Fold this even smaller square in half and insert your thumb and forefinger into each of the four outer pockets. Bring your fingertips together to shape the container, then remove them.
