Pashka is a traditional Russian Easter dish, creamy and tasty, think cheesecake without a crust. This has become an Easter tradition in our household, enjoyed for breakfast. Of course, it can be enjoyed any time you would you like to serve it. Consider it easy to make, delicious, and beautiful to present.

2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1/2 c. butter
1-1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
2 egg yolks
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. chopped citron
1/2 c. slivered almonds
Blend all the above ingredients. (we use the Cuisinart). Line a new five-inch clay flower pot with cheese cloth. Pack the Pashka mix into the pot. Chill overnight. Before serving, invert onto platter, remove cheesecloth, and mark with a cross of raisins. Garnish with strawberries. Enjoy!
