Mmmm, these are delicious! (And I'm not even a pimento cheese fan.) They remind me of cheese biscuits with jam or a baked brie because of the flavor combination. The savory cheese and butter flavors are light and tangy and pair so well with the sweet preserves. I used strawberry preserves but I think plum would also be fun to try. I agree with other reviewers that these are quick and easy to make. I will be making these again for the holidays to share with others.
These are quick, easy, and awesome!! I made a double batch; one batch was exactly as directed, the other was with rosemary jelly. The strawberry was better and I think raspberry would be good as well.
I made these without the filling. They are very easy to make and tasty. I used the Palmetto pimento cheese and added a dash of cayenne pepper. The next time I make them I`ll use the jalapeno pimento cheese.
How are they without the jelly but just served as thin "biscuits/crackers?"
Sound good, but not strawberry fan, so I'm try a pepper jelly or maybe next time a raspberry chipotle Jam
The perfect blend of savory and sweet. Each bite yields butter, pimiento cheese, strawberry jam, and ground pecans. Taking these to my weekend Super Bowl party, where I am sure they will be devoured in an instant. These cookies are very easy to make but they do take time (rolling the dough, filling the cookies, correctly placing the tops, crimping, then baking) - so if you have a helper in the kitchen when you bake, that would make this an even better baking experience. But the results are well worth it. GREAT cookie.
