Old Fashioned Pounded Cheese

Ok, I have a real problem with Cheez-Whiz. Cheese was not meant to be a high velocity, spray can, cracker topping. It’s just not right. Pounded cheese is as close as I get to a Cheez-Whiz substance. This is an old fashioned recipe that is great served out of a little crock at room temp or can be cooled and formed into a cheeseball. This is such an easy spreadable cheese and the best part it’s made of real cheese!
