Pimientos give great color to this soft-textured cheese log. I make it for many occasions throughout the year.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped ripe olives
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Assorted crackers

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the next nine ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Shape into a log. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Serve with crackers.
