Russian Easter Cheese Desserts: Paskhas

There are many types of this dish named Paskha, but the general ingredients are the same: farmers' cheese, butter, heavy cream, sugar, eggs, and sour cream. The desserts, which have appeared on Russian Easter Day breakfast tables since 17th century, are a traditional treat served to celebrate the end of Lent, breaking the seven-week fast of vegetarian-only foods.

Paskha cannot be considered healthy, as it is both high-carb and high fat. However, sweeteners of your choice can substitute sugar, making the dishes low-carb.

Paskha can be a mixture of raw products, can be steamed, or baked. Considering the danger of Salmonella in raw eggs, I'm providing only the recipes requiring boiling of at least the egg part of the dish.
