    Cilantro in Canada's Note:

    This is a variation of a traditional Easter dessert that Russian Orthodox make. It is quite rich and too much will cause you to pack on the pounds. This isn't a huge concern after a long lent. The number of portions is an estimate (depends on how much you put on your plate - my kids load it on). The cooking and preparation times are also rough estimates.

      AWESOME! Somehow missed reviewing this fantastic tasting traditional dessert which graced our Easter table last year. Loved how easy it was to make - and better yet the wonderful taste that one gets from the combination of the dry cottage cheese and the cream cheese. Made as posted resulting in a dessert I was proud to serve. Rich and lovely and so worth the splurge! Thank you for sharing.
