Storage

  • 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. Can’t wait to try Price’s. I’m hung up on Palmetto Cheese. Its only at Publix and (thankfully much cheaper) at Sams. Its addictive, especially with Fritos. I have probably a dozen pimento cheese recipes and love them all, but I’ve never been able to eat a bought one until I tried Palmetto.

    1. Palmetto is also available at Walmart, Walmart Neighborhood Store, and Costco. It is the only brand that I will buy.

    2. It is also available at Ingles and Bi-Lo in my area, upstate SC/foothills NC. It is also made with good ol’ Duke’s Mayo! I’ve been loving it ever since it began to be available for sale at Pauley’s Island, where my daughter lived.

  2. I can get a pimento cheese spread at the stores here in NY/upstate but they are loaded with sugar! I grew up in Texas with homemade pimento cheese that never had sugar added to it. I love pimento cheese but have NEVER made it. How much homemade would you use for this recipe? Time for this 60 yr old to learn to make it! i will look at your recipes as I know they will be wonderful!

  3. Hi Christy, I have tried these yummy little biscuits before but it has been awhile. Since I have a public grocery store right down the street from my house, I’ll just drop by there tomorrow and pick up some pimento cheese and make them myself. Thank You For All That You Do! Have a Great Day!

  4. We have a hometown brand of pimento cheese that is my go-to brand, Mrs. Grissom’s. Started in 1955, it is still made in Nashville, TN and is sold at Wal-Mart. Hands down, it’s the best…and their chicken salad is divine ( I have some in my fridge right now!). Of course, my mom used to make her own back in the days of the “government cheese” allotments. Mom would mix American and cheddar for her pimento cheese, YUM!

  5. I love love love pimento cheese spread! My favorite is Hy Vee brand because it really is homemadeI have got to try this recipe! Sounds great!
