Now, anyone who has been with me a while knows that I’m a HUGE fan of pimento cheese. There are several recipes involving this cheese on Southern Plate as it just makes my taste buds happy.

It looks just like my homemade pimento cheese and tastes like my Grandmama made it.

  • Store leftover biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the fridge for up to 1 week. You can reheat them in the microwave or air fryer.
  • You can also freeze baked drop biscuits for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge before reheating as above.

Recipe Notes

  • You can find Price’s Southern Style Pimento Cheese at Publix right now and more grocery stores soon! It’s the only pimento cheese I’ve found in stores that tastes like homemade because it is made like homemade.
  • However, check out this recipe if you want to make homemade pimento cheese to add to this biscuit recipe. You’ll need sharp cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, salt, and diced pimentos.
  • For the best biscuits, use a straight up and down movement when cutting the dough with a biscuit cutter. No twists and turns are required!
  • To add a little heat, add 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or smoked paprika. You can also add a couple of teaspoons of hot sauce.

  1. Hi Christy – I would love to try this recipe, but since I live in Maine, I doubt that I can find Price’s Pimento Cheese in my area. Any suggestions for a substitution? By the way, I have tried many of your recipes and they are wonderful!

    1. Homemade Pimento Cheese is easy and so good! I’m in Mississippi and Price’s isn’t sold in my area. I will make my own and use it. Can’t wait!

  2. Christy, these look fabulous. Can’t wait to try them. I am curious…when I click on your main page of your website, the most current blog post is the 2/17 recipe for kale salad. I know you have posted since as I get the posts in my email, but why do they not show up on the home page since the 2/17 date? Thanks.

    1. Hey Teresa! Thank you so very much for letting me know. We are having an issue with the site caching and hoping, desperately, to find a solution today. I have no idea how to fix it but I appreciate you letting me know that you are having the problem, too! If you read this, can you update me as to whether or not it is still happening for you?

      1. Hi Christy,

        I just checked today for you and it looks like it is fixed. I see the cheesecake fluff now, as well as meal plan monday, pimento biscuits, etc. So maybe you are all set now? Thanks for helping us with that!

      2. Just an FYI–I have this same problem. I read about the enchanted water bowl and then there was nothing new that showed up until yesterday, March 10! I am loving the catching up though and can’t wait to try the biscuits for Easter dinner. ☺

        1. OH goodness, I’m so excited it is working for you now! Thank you so much for letting me know. Hopefully all problems are solved. I really appreciate you going back and checking out the posts that were missed, too!

    1. CHRISTY, we have Cheese Whiz here in Canada, a cheese spread, and then we got Tex Mex cheese whiz which has morphed into Jalapeno cheese whiz, but that is just a FYI aside.
      What I really want to say, is I make cheese biscuits all the time, with preshredded cheese, and I use whatever I have old cheddar, tex mex for nachos or Italian style, even have used parmesan shreds. So am going to chop pimentos and add, and bake some biscuits this weekend.

  3. Hello Christy – did you get the email that I sent you about the Pyrex even in Nashville TN April 9th?

  4. I buy Price’s Pimento Cheese at our Publix too and it is the closest to real thing (homemade)! I do like to add a bit more shredded cheese to mine since I don’t like mine real mayonnaisy (is that a real word?). Can’t wait to try this recipe ~ thanks for sharing.
