Method: 

Scrape rind off cheese and remove any hard parts. In a bowl, blend butter and cheese until smooth and creamy. Add mustard, cayenne and flour and mix together to form a dough that can be easily shaped. Form dough into two 1 1/2-inch wide rolls. Wrap in waxed paper and chill for at least 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut each roll of dough into approximately 15 slices and bake on ungreased baking sheets for 12 to 15 minutes. Set aside to let cool, then serve.
