In a large bowl, beat cheese spread, butter, red pepper, and salt until well blended. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, using hands to knead until all flour is incorporated. Knead in pecans. Divide dough into thirds. Shape each piece into 8 inch long logs. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill over night.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut logs into 1/8 inch sllices. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store in a cookie tin.
