Tottie's Pimiento Cheese

“This spread has been in my family for more years than I am old. My Great-Aunt Tottie made this for the whole family for years, sometimes using five pounds of cheese at a time. She never allowed anyone else in the family to do it. After her death, over 30 years ago, we found the recipe in a drawer in her kitchen much to the delight of everyone. Cook time is chilling time for peak flavor.”
