Butterkäse, translates to "butter cheese" in German,
is a semi-soft, cow's milk cheese popular in Germany.
"Butter Cheese" originated in Germany and
is made throughout Germany and Austria.
It's name literally means "butter cheese" because of it's butter-like texture.
It is also called Dämenkäse or "ladies cheese" because
it's delicately flavored, odorless and
quite complementary to most foods and wines.

Butterkäse has a buttery flavor and appearance.
Mild in taste due to it's brief aging time.
The softness and mildly salty flavor is similar to Munster and Gouda cheeses.
The texture of Butterkäse is smooth, and creamy.
Sometimes nearly spreadable depending on
the firmness achieved by the cheese monger.

Butterkäse cheese is often sliced and
added to dough, put in sandwiches or melted in cooking.
Butterkäse is produced at Edelweiss Creamery in the Alpine Tradition in Monroe, Wisconsin.
