       Title: Cheese Biscotti
  Categories: Snacks, Biscotti
       Yield: 20 Servings
  
     1/2 c  Unsalted butter; softened
       1 tb Sugar
       2 lg Eggs
       1 c  Sharp cheddar cheese; shred
   2 1/4 c  All-purpose flour
   1 1/2 ts Baking powder
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/4 ts Ground red pepper
  
   Heat oven to 325~. In large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed, beat
   butter, sugar and eggs and cheese until well mixed. Reduce mixer speed to
   low. Gradually beat in 1 cup flour, the baking powder, salt and red pepper.
   Beat in enough of the remaining flour until a soft dough forms. With a
   wooden spoon, stir in more flour until a stiff dough forms. Divide dough in
   half and place both halves about 3 apart on a lightly greased baking
   sheet. Shape each into a 9 1/2 log, about 1 high and 2 wide. Bake 30
   minutes or until firm and olden brown. Remove logs from oven and reduce
   temperature to 300~. Transfer logs to a cutting board. While they are still
   warm, using a serrated knife, carefully cut each log diagonally into 1/2
   thick slices. Arrange slices, cut sides down, on the baking sheet and bake
   15-20 minutes or until slices are dried but not browned, turning over each
   slice once. Cool and store in airtight container.
