How to Make Sweet Pimento Cheese

In large mixing bowl, combine the two cheeses. Mix with your hands until the two cheeses are totally blended throughout.
In a medium microwave-safe mixing bowl, place the room temperature cream cheese. Cream it, using a fork or an electric mixer. If not soft enough to cream easily, microwave for 15 - 20 seconds. When smooth, add mayo, vinegar, spices and sugar. Again, cream until mix is smooth. Fold in the pimentos until well-distributed in the mix.
Add cream cheese mixture to the two blended cheeses in large mixing bowl. Using a fork, slowly incorporate the cheeses into the cream cheese mixture until all cheese is moistened and well-blended. Continue to blend until you achieve desired texture - anywhere from chunky to smooth - your choice.
You can serve immediately with crackers, celery sticks, or use in a sandwich. Or you can refrigerate and serve chilled. Flavor will intensify as it sits. Enjoy!
