Spicy Cheese Cocktail Biscuits

For best results, don't use preshredded Cheddar cheese—instead, grate your own. To give the biscuits a spicier flavor, use the larger amount of ground red pepper. Serve a sparkling white wine, such as Domaine Ste. Michelle Cuvée Brut, Washington (about $12), with these cheese straw-like appetizers.

Yield: Makes about 28 biscuits
