My MIL makes this every Easter. It's good! I happen to like it cold and sliced on ham sandwiches. Sometimes she just used a little honey instead of vanilla and sugar. I believe it is called "Hrutka."

I have made this before. Easter cheese.You can add a little cinnamon and more sugar. I like it with no cinnamon. A hint of nutmeg,too. Slice when chilled and serve with easter dinner.I haven't made this recipe. I just needed the measures of milk. Try it.A good hungarian cheese.
