Gunter Hotel Cheese Spread

I’m really showing my age on this one! Back in the day, before the famous Gunter Hotel in San Antonio was purchased by the Sheraton group, they served this cheese as a little treat in the hotel bar and restaurants. It’s kind of like pimento cheese, but without any pimento. It has a fantastic flavor and is so easy to make. Our local newspaper published the recipe in 90s, when I was 12. Ok, I wasn’t 12, but let’s not get into that. Serve this yumminess at your next gathering and get ready for the happy faces!
