Pimento cheese is one of my favorites. I have always purchased it pre-made from the store. NEVER AGAIN! This recipe is absolutely delicious. In fact, I have found myself having a hard time not going to the fridge for "just one more"...I have a stand-up mixer and what a breeze to throw together. I'm in heaven! I can't wait until our next party for my pimento cheese debut!
