Ukrainian Easter Cheese (Paska)
This unbaked cheese Paska was one of my mother Sofia's traditional Ukrainian Easter recipes. She passed away in 1995 so I have been making it ever since. It is easy to make, very rich, and a hit every time. Decorate with the fruits of your choice.
Recipe Summary test
Substitute almond extract for the vanilla extract if desired.
This dessert is traditionally made in a pyramid-shaped mold called a "pasotchnitza," though a conical sieve or clean terra cotta flower pot with a hole in the bottom can be used to achieve the pyramid shape. A regular sieve or colander can also be used to produce a round shape.
