ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)
teaspoon ground red pepper
- 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.
- Preheat oven to 350 degree F. With a knife or a crinkle cutter, slice the cheese logs into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place slices on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container up to 3 days. Makes about 4-1/2 dozen crackers.
