Tom's Sweet Pimento Cheese

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"This pimento cheese is great as a sandwich, as a spread on crackers, or stuffed into celery. Our kids can't get enough of it. I like it best served as a sandwich with a big bowl of my homemade chili."

Best I have ever made, I made pimento cheese for 40 years but this is the first time I've used cream cheese. This is a wonderful recipe, I'll make it again. Thanks to Tom!!

WOW! Awesome pimento cheese!

This recipe had too much pickle relish for me but the rest of my family really liked it. I think I will half the amount of pickle relish and omit the pickle juice next time.
