Pimento Cheese Spread

Sherry Blizzard


Nanny Pruitt made the best pimento cheese spread on the planet. I've been so hungry for it that I called mom (witch 123 Billie Blair) for the recipe. It's so easy! Nanny didn't put the mustard in hers, but I think it adds a little kick. You have to let it rest in the refrigerator overnight before eating. It's so creamy and yummy and is a good dip for celery sticks.
