What is juustoleipa?
Juustoleipa, or "bread cheese," comes from northern Finland and Sweden, where it was originally made from reindeer milk. With a soft, buttery texture and mild, slightly sweet flavor, juustoleipa is baked in special ovens where the heat caramelizes the sugar on the outside of the cheese to give it a toasty crust.
