Pimiento Cheese Pie Bites
Pimento cheese is a Southern staple and so are my delicious Pimiento Cheese Pie bites!Ingredients:
1 box pie crust mix (or 2 recipes SB Pie Dough from my cookbook on page 17)
3 cups grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups grated white cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (I use Duke's)
1 1/2 cups diced pimientos
1/4 cup seeds removed and diced jalapeño peppers
2 tablespoons finely chopped Vidalia onion
1 clove garlic, grated
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan.
Make pie crust according to the directions. Roll our dough into 2 (12 inch) circles. Cut 24 (3-inch) circles with a biscuit cutter. Press dough circles into each muffin cup. Bake 25 minutes; remove pan from oven and set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine cheeses, mayonnaise, pimientos, jalapeños, onion, garlic, and pecans. Fill mini pie crusts with cheese mixture. serve.
