    Default Pashka (Russian Easter Dish)

    This creamy traditional Russian Easter dish is like cheesecake without the crust, and may be enjoyed anytime!

    Pashka is a cheese cake-like dessert or breakfast food that is usually eaten with thick-crusted breads, but can be eaten plain, too. Though no cooking is needed, it does chill over night.

    2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
    1 (8 ounce) container cottage cheese
    1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1 cup white sugar
    1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup finely chopped blanched almonds
    1/2 cup currants

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

    Serves 10
