Directions:

beat into cheese mixture. Stir in Rice Krispies. If necessary, turn onto a lightly floured surface and

overnight.

To Make Ahead: Dough can be made 2 days in advance. Freeze option: Freeze wrapped logs in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, unwrap frozen logs and cut into slices. Bake as directed. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
