Tetilla Cheese Making Recipe

5 1 review
Print Recipe
This cheese comes from the northwest corner of Spain, where the mountains meet the sea. Surprisingly, cow milk cheese in Spain is not common due in part to the rough mountains and dry plateaus.

On a recent trip to Spain, Tetilla cheese stood out with its freshness and unique shape of a flattened tear drop. It is a wonderful high to medium moisture cheese with a sweet buttery flavor. In this recipe, we even added our own finish with a smoked paprika and oil rub, yum.
