When I lived in the South for a few years, We lived next to the sweetest lady, who had quite the range of old world southern recipes. She taught my mom how to make every southern staple from Sausage gravy to sweet potato pie. But, her Pimento cheese was something special. And I hadn't realized that mom had the recipe until I snooped through her arsenal of recipes! So from Mrs. Mables kitchen to yours, heres her southern pimento cheese recipe! I hope you enjoy. (:
