We take the flavors of the South's favorite spread and make into savory bites of Pimiento Cheese Squares--perfect for parties or gifts.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Drain pimiento; pat dry with paper towels, and finely chop. Stir ground mustard and ground red pepper into flour. Gradually add chopped pimiento to flour mixture, tossing to coat.

Step 3

Beat cheese, butter, and salt at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating just until combined.

Step 4

Turn out onto a well-floured surface. Divide into 2 equal portions; flatten each into a square. Roll each square to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with a 1 1/2-inch square cutter. Place 1 inch apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 15 to 20 minutes; cool on baking sheets on wire racks 30 minutes.
