Liptauer Cheese Spread

Red and white bowl filled with Liptauer Cheese Spread

Liptauer Cheese Spread is creamy, cheesy, smoky, tangy and pungent – all at the same time! Easy to prepare with readily available ingredients, this delicious spread is served with crackers, pretzel chips and/or celery sticks.




  1. Combine the cream cheese, goat cheese, butter and sour cream in the bowl of a food processor. Process just until combined.
  2. Add the capers, beer, onion, anchovy, paprika and dry mustard and process until combined. Stir in caraway seeds. Season to taste with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.
  3. Pack in to a crock, mold, or serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or longer), allowing the flavors to blend. Bring to room temperature before serving.


Make ahead: spread can be prepared up to 3 days ahead, covered and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Gluten free: serve with gluten free crackers and celery sticks.
