    MommyKat's Note:

    My mother used to make this most every Russian Orthodox Easter for the feast that typically follows midnight mass. I think she got it from my Baba (grandmother), so it's definitely authentic.

      I love this recipe! have made it each Easter since finding it. It does make alot, so we enjoy sharing it with friends at Pascha (Russian Easter). After fasting from meat and dairy during Great Lent, this really satisfies!
