What Liptauer Cheese is
Liptauer is a cream cheese based bread spread that is very common in Austria. It is a rare incident of a vegetarian meal on my list of Austrian recipes. It works very well as a snack on dark bread or in white bread rolls (Semmeln). A light, acidic white wine in a white spritzer makes a perfect Austrian snack for a warm summer evening. It is also very easy to prepare - I believe to remember this being one of the first things we "cooked" at school. Austrian cuisine for the novice…
How to make Liptauer
Cut the gherkins and onion into very little pieces. If very big, cut the capers. To make your life easier, melt the butter in the microwave or use a blender for mixing it with all other ingredients. Make a smooth spread. In the end, it should have a light, orange colour from the paprika.
