Sweet-cheese Easter Dessert Pascha

Sweet farmer’s cheese dessert, mixed with raisins and nuts. The sweet “cake” resembles cheesecake filling, if it were prepared without the crust.

I talk about how Poles celebrate Easter in my most recent cookbook dedicated to this holiday: Polish Your Kitchen: A Book of Memories, Easter Edition. The cookbook is a complete guide to preparing a Polish Easter feast following recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation in my Polish family. I hope you check it out!
