Pimento Cheese Biscuit Recipe


  • • 2 cups of Callie's Hot Little Biscuit mix
  • • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • • 6 oz pimento cheese
  • • 1/2 to 3/4 cup buttermilk

I like to think of the Master's Tournament as the start of the "pimento cheese season"... It's a time where this southern delicacy really comes to life in kitchens across the country as they watch to see who will win the Green Jacket. I love carrying pimento cheese into my Easter brunch dishes and then making it again as queso for Cinco de Mayo. These biscuits would even be a perfect addition to a Mother's Day breakfast in bed - sandwich some bacon or sausage between the biscuit with a fried egg and you'd have a delicious start to the day!

This year, it occurred to me – I have never used pimento cheese in biscuit dough before! How is that possible?!

This recipe is super easy - simply use our buttermilk biscuit recipe and sub the pimento cheese instead of the butter and cream cheese and wow! A delicious combination of true Southern staples!

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Place 2 cups of biscuit mix into a large bowl.
  3. Add 6 oz of pimento cheese. Mix until fully incorporated. 
  4. Make a well in the center of the dough. Add 1/2 cup buttermilk and combine until the dough is wet and sticky. Be careful not to overwork the dough. If more liquid is needed to absorb the flour, add the remaining buttermilk. 
  5. Liberally dust the dough, rolling surface, rolling pin, and cutter with the remaining biscuit mix. Flip the dough onto a dusted surface. Roll the dough using a rolling pin until it is 2 inches thick.
  6. As you cut the biscuits, place on a parchment lined, rimmed baking sheet. The biscuits should touch. Bring remaining dough back together into a mound. Roll, cut, and place the biscuits in the same manner.
  7. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and brush onto biscuits.
  8. Bake for 16-18 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.
