  Paskha with Dried Apricots


500 g cottage cheese
200 g dried apricots
100 g granulated sugar

Easter has always been the most beloved Orthodox holiday. It's wonderfully joyous, bright and beautiful. So is the holiday table. Paskha is a special Easter cake traditionally baked from very fresh cottage cheese and fresh eggs. It is convenient to use a special form for this Easter dish, which is a hollow 4-side pyramid consisting of 4 wooden boards.

Rinse the dried apricots. Pour some water over it, add sugar and boil. Thoroughly wring out the cottage cheese, blend it with the apricots and rub through a sieve. Mix it thoroughly, cover the mixture with a think cloth and press down with something heavy. Leave it in a cold place for 3-4 hours. After that form a traditional 4-side pyramidal paskha and serve it decorated with candied fruit, dried apricots and prunes.
