 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   13       oz           X-sharp cheddar cheese
      1/2   c            Butter
      1/2   c            Corn oil margarine
      1/4   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Cayenne pepper (to taste)
    3       c            All-purpose flour
                         Pecan halves (optional)
 
   Grate cheese and mix with softened butter, margarine, salt and pepper until
   light.  Add flour and mix thoroughly (you may need to get your hands into
   the mixture to incorporate all the flour). Form the mixture into 3 or 4
   rolls, about the diameter of a quarter. Wrap each in aluminum foil and
   chill overnight. The next day, cut into thin slices and press a pecan half
   on top of each, if you wish.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350ø to
   375øF for about 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Can be
   made 3 to 4 days ahead and stored in airtight container.
   
   Note: If desired, add 1 cup of finely chopped pecans to dough. Small
   portions of the dough can be rolled into marble-sized balls, put on
   ungreased cookie sheets, flattened with a fork and baked at 350øF until
   lightly brown around the edges.
