    • 500g twarog (Russian curd cheese)
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 100g butter

    1. Press twarog through a sieve, or pulse in a food processor.
    2. In a saucepan beat eggs with vanilla and sugar. Add cream.
    3. Heat this mixture on the stove over low heat and simmer until thickened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
    4. Chop fruit gums and mix them into the twarog.
    5. Use a special easter cake pan, or line a small colander, with several layers of muslin cheese cloth. Spoon the mixture into it and place a heavy plate on top to weigh it down.
    6. Set over a bowl to catch the liquid and refrigerate for several hours.
    7. Remove from the fridge. Carefully unmould the pashka and remove the cheesecloth. Decorate with chopped fruit jellies.
