1 Cream the cheese and butter. Sift together the cayenne pepper, salt and flour and gradually add to the butter. Add the nuts and mix well.
2 Divide the dough in half and shape into logs about 4cm/1½" in diameter. Wrap well in greaseproof paper or clingfilm and refrigerate for at least an hour. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line baking sheets with baking parchment.
