Pimento Cheese Pinecone


This past Sunday, I used an idea by a fellow blogger and created an easy to make pimento cheese appetizer.


I purchased a premade pimento cheese from our local market, shaped it into a pinecone shape with my hands, and then added whole almonds atop the cheese.


I then added faux pine greens to the top and a shiny acorn.


Isn’t this darling?

The pimento cheese pinecone was such a hit that no one wanted to mess it up. Of course, I did by taking the first big bite. I just cannot get enough of pimento cheese.

The banana leaf pewter platter is by Beatriz Ball.

Pimento Cheese Pinecone, y’all!


  1. That looks too pretty to eat!! I was so happy when I saw you being featured over at Kim's, CONGRATS Ron!!

  2. Well, isn't that clever! Last year, Natalie made a "Christmas tree" out of squares of marinated cheese, cherry tomatoes, and rosemary sprigs. Check this out! Have a great day! :)

  3. What a pretty platter! I also love how pewter does not need as much upkeep as silver but can be just as shiny and bright!

  4. so pretty! {and delicious!} if i don't have time to make it, palmetto cheese is absolutely the best thing on this earth. i would eat the whole tub if .... well, i don't know if what. i guess i just stop myself because that would not be a healthy thing to do.
    very cute!

  5. I love pimento cheese. This is so cute of an idea!!! xo, Jill

  6. How cute and what a pretty way to serve it for a party! I LOVE pimento cheese. Cream cheese and pepper jelly is another favorite party dish. Sometimes instead of pepper jelly, I make Jezebel sauce to go over the cream cheese. Not as pretty, but sooo good.

  7. Fabulously festive! The caviar of the South deserves to be the focal point of the spread (couldn't resist). May I also give a big thumbs up to the King Gator notecards. Great tastes and Happy Holidays, Ron!
