Ten Days Of Pimento Cheese: Vol Au Vent, C'est Tres Elegant

So how exactly would one transform The Masters' most iconic sandwich into an elegant hors d'oeuvre? Is it even possible?  Well yes, it absolutely is, and with a bit of research I found hundreds of recipes for a wide array of cocktail snacks.      

My favorite, Bacon Pimento Cheese Puff Pastry Cups from The Blonde Cook , is briliiant in its simplicity. In fact, if you use a store bought pimento cheese (Palmetto Cheese by Pawley's Island Specialty Foods is a good one) it's ultra-easy to make. It's also delicious and extremely impressive looking.  You can even call it Vol au Vent, which... my husband tells me...  is their French name. And that just makes them all the more elegant.
