Wrap in wax paper; chill until firm, about 1 hour. Cut log into slices 1/4-inch thick. Place 1/2-inch apart on baking sheets. Bake in 375 degrees oven 12 to 14 minutes, just until bottoms are lightly browned. Transfer to racks to cool. Store in airtight container. Serve with fresh fruit and a selection of cheese.
