Originally made from reindeer milk, juustoleipa has been produced for more than 200 years in northern Finland and Sweden. The name means "bread cheese." It is unusual in that it is baked during the cheesemaking process. This "squeaky" cheese has a very buttery flavor, and the heat from baking caramelizes the sugars on the outside of the cheese to form a tasty crust similar to brown bread. Juustoleipa is an important cheese in its homeland; crucial to holiday celebrations and even marriage traditions. Mothers of eligible women used to offer suitors a cup of coffee with the cheese and, if the man liked the cheese, he married the girl!
