Pimento Cheese, please!

     From the grilled pimento cheese on challah bread at Henri's Bakery in Atlanta's Buckhead to the savory pimento cheese spread at Zara's Uptown, I am a huge fan of anything made with this Southern comfort food.
     Flipping through the pages of the February 2012 Southern Living magazine, there is a whole section devoted to this savory treat, Pimento Cheese: The Pate' of the South. I salivated at the following mouth-watering recipes--- Smoky Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs, Pimento Cheese Cookies, Hominy Grill's Pimento Cheese, and the one I decided to prepare for a Super Sunday Superbowl Soiree, Pimento Cheese Rolls.

     Pimento Cheese Rolls
     Makes: 1 dozen
     Hand-On time: 15 minutes
     Total time: 1 hr. 15 min.

     1 (25 oz.) package frozen Southern-style biscuits... I used Pillsbury Grands
     All-purpose flour
     2 cups pimento cheese... I used Palmetto Cheese

     1. Arrange biscuits, with sides touching, in 3 rows of 4 biscuits on a lightly fluored surface. Let stand 30-45 minutes until biscuits are thawed but cool to the touch.

     2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle biscuits lightly with flour. Press the edges together, and pat to form a 10 x 12 rectangle of dough. Then, spread dough with pimento cheese.

     3. Roll up, starting at one end; cut slices into 12(1 inch thick) slices. Place 1 slice into each muffin cup of a lightly greased 12-cup muffin pan.

     4. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes; remove from pan, and serve.

     Let me just say that these pimento cheese rolls do not disappoint. They are simply delicious, simply tasty, and simply Southern.
     * Tip: I baked for 25 minutes on top rack of oven. I would probably bake on the lower rack for 20 minutes next time.

Happy Baking, y'all !

    1. I miss our Buckhead Betty shopping days and lunch at Henri's. Boo who! xo

  2. That looks delicious! I may make them for Saturday's night parade in T-town. :)

  3. Paula Deen has a great recipe for making your own pimento cheese....

  4. Mercy! I have to try these. I was looking at a newer post and saw this and the other pimento cheese recipe. I hate to say it but, I'm a pimento cheese snob. I only eat homemade pimento cheese, with the exception of Palmetto Cheese. Love it.
    Thanks for sharing this recipe.
