”Västerbottenpaj” A Dreamy Swedish Cheese Pie!

Västerbotten Cheese

The wonderful Västerbotten cheese has been produced in the same way since 1872. The recipe was invented by Ulrica Eleonora Lindström and is still kept a secret. Only a few trusted people know the recipe and it is well hidden in the diary safe. Lots of people have made huge attempts to produce the cheese outside Burträsk, no one has succeeded. Wonder what the secret behind this magical cheese is?

There are so many wonderful recipes with this cheese. I have earlier made a Västerbotten Pizza that is fantastic😋.
