Russian Easter "Pascha" Dessert ♥




This is traditionally an easter dessert, you can serve it anytime of the year, but here's my low fat version of my grandma katrina's "pascha" enjoy!  ♥

Ingredients  ♥
8-oz pks.  low fat Cream Cheese
1/2 pint low fat cottage cheese or farmer's cheese
1/4 pound sweet butter ( I can't believe it's not butter brand)
1/4 cup confectionery sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
cheesecloth
clean flower pot about 6" in diameter or "pascha mold" to buy the pascha mold click here....

With a mixer or food processor, blend the cottage cheese until it is smooth. Add the low fat cream cheese and low fat butter and blend until smooth. Add the two types of sugar and blend smooth. Add raisins, sliver almonds,  fruits as desires. Line the flowerpot or pascha mold with three layers of damp cheesecloth. Pour in mixture. Put a weight on top (10 pounds is good) and let sit in the refrigerator until no more drainage is seen (at least 2 days). Remove from mold and unwrap cloth. Make an XB on it in sugared almonds. Serve with Pascha bread "kulich" and enjoy~!
