Pimento Cheese Spread

This time of year everyone needs easy appetizers to bring to parties or to serve their visiting friends and family. This pimento cheese spread is one of my favorites - easy to keep on hand and whip out a quick snack when needed! 

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup grated sharp cheddar
1 cup grated white cheddar
1/2 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon sea salt 
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2 to 3 tablespoons pimentos, smashed
1 teaspoon grated scallions
Pinch cayenne pepper or a dash of hot sauce 

Mix cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add all other ingredients and mix until well combined. Serve with toasted bread or crackers. Or make a sandwich with white Wonder bread! <3
