Recipe Details
Pashka is a cheese cake-like dessert or breakfast food that is usually eaten with thick-crusted breads, but I like it plain, too. Though no cooking is needed, it does chill over night. My Bestemor has made this for me since I was a child and I have always loved it!

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream and butter.
  2. Gradually fold in sugar, lemon extract, vanilla extract, almonds and currants.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a shallow medium dish. Cover with a cloth, and chill in the refrigerator 8 hours, or overnight.
