  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon

1. Cream the butter in the small bowl of an electric mixer. Beat in the cheddar cheese, milk, salt, Tabasco, paprika and cayenne. Gradually mix in the flour and bread crumbs.
2. Turn the mixture out on a smooth surface and knead by hand until the mixture is blended. Divide into halves and wrap each half in waxed paper. Chill in the refrigerator several hours or overnight.
3. Preheat oven to moderate (350° F.).
