Pimento Cheese Wheels

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces Borden(R) Shredded Cheese (Triple Cheddar, or any mix of Sharp, Mild, or Monterey Jack)
  • 4 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 ounces diced pimentos (drained)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black ground pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 sheets puff pastry (thawed)
  • Yields 18 servings

Steps

  • COMBINE the shredded cheese with the softened cream cheese and mayonnaise in a medium size bowl. Stir together to create a consistent texture.
  • ADD the diced pimentos, salt, and pepper, and stir.
  • ADD the egg and water in a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • BRUSH the egg wash over the top of the puff pastry. Spoon pimento cheese mixture on top. Spread it out into a consistent layer.
  • ROLL the puff pastry carefully to create a roll. Gently slice the roll into 1-inch long sections using a sharp knife.
  • LAY rolls onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or foil. Make sure to not crowd the rolls or they will stick to each other while baking.
  • BAKE for 20 minutes; rolls will be golden and cheese will be bubbly.
  • COOL for about 5 minutes, then remove from the pan.
