Here’s a festive, delicious and easy recipe that travels well because you put it together when you get to your holiday party. I served this at Elder’s Ace Hardware Christmas Open House in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a three hour trip from our home. I simply packed my Palmetto Pimento Cheese in a cooler and took some of our Strawberry Vanilla Spread and the rest of my supplies in a basket.

Delicious recipe inspired by Palmetto Pimento Cheese, paired with Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla and Front Porch Pecans.
Ingredients
  • 24 oz. Palmetto Pimento Cheese Original, Jalapeno or Bacon
  • 2 jars Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • Front Porch Sea Salt Roasted Pecans
  • Crackers
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Spoon Palmetto Pimento Cheese in a round wreath shape on your party platter. I chose a platter that had a lip so I just followed the line. If your platter doesn't have an interior lip, simply put a glass in the middle to leave space and spoon your pimento cheese in a circle. This doesn't have to be perfect.

  2. Decorate the pimento cheese wreath with pecans.

  2. Measure the flour, baking powder, and kosher salt into the work bowl of your food processor and pulse to combine, then add the cheese cubes and process until the cheese is finely chopped. Add the heavy whipping cream, and pulse until the dough comes together. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface.

  3. Roll dough to approx. 1 inch thickness and cut with biscuit cutter. Tip: To get the best rise, cut straight down, don't twist the cutter.

  4. Place into a lightly greased cast iron skillet, with biscuits touching. My pan held 9 biscuits and I had a little dough left over.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Baking time will depend on how thick you have rolled them, so keep an eye on them!

  6. Serve warm with butter and Unicoi Preserves. Leftovers? Split them in half and toast them under the broiler. Extra delicious!
