Rasberry Cheese Torte

1 1/2 lb Good quality Cheddar cheese,
1/4 c Onion, finely minced
1 c Pecans, chopped
1/4 ts Cayenne pepper
1/3 c Mayonnaise
1/4 ts Hot red pepper sauce, or to
1 c Good quality rasberry
Fresh rasberries for garnish

Place grated cheese in a large bowl and let stand at room temperature until soft and slightly oily. Stir in onion pecans, cayenne, mayonnaise and pepper sauce. Knead with hands until well-blended. Line a 10-inch pan with plastic wrap. An indented flan pan is best, but any pan that will unmold to form a flat surface on top may be used. Press cheese mixture firmly into pan. Cover top with additional plastic wrap and press cheese mixture again to mold firmly. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or until cheese is firm again.

To serve, unmold torte onto serving dish. Spread top with preserves and garnish with fresh rasberries or a lemon rose. Serve with assorted crackers.

NOTES : The torte can be made ahead but preserves shold not be spread on top more than1 hour before serving.
