Easter Pascha - a Greek Tradition

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by sassafrasnanc

At our Russian Orthodox church in Boston many Greek's came to celebrate as they did not have a Greek church in the small town we lived in. They preferred this versian of Pascha to the traditional Russian style (it IS absolutely wonderful with the sweet Polish bread!)

Yum! This is definitely a childhood memory food. I looked forward to this every Pascha. Especially after no dairy for 40 days! So rich and creamy.
