Make-Ahead Cheese Logs

READY IN: 8hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Wrapped in coloured Saran Wrap, these make great holiday gifts! Plan ahead these need to chill for a minimum of 8 hours before serving, or they can be made and frozen up to 1 month in advance, Add in one finely chopped green onion also if desired, the pimento is optional but good to add in.

We loved these! Those we intended to save one we ate them both immediately. Gave one to a friends family for Christmas and the teenage son insisted I could not have made it was too good!
