Paskha is a sweetly flavored cheese dish from Russia that includes nuts, dried fruit and "pot cheese". This dish is served at Easter. Moreover, Paskha is most often referred to as Russian cheesecake; a dessert made from curd cheese and is molded in shape in the form of a truncated pyramid. It is white in color, symbolizing the purity of Christ, the Paschal Lamb, and the joy of the Resurrection. Paskha is most often served with Kulich. Paskha is a traditional dessert served and enjoyed for Easter in Russia, as well as other Eastern European countries to break the meat and dairy fast. The name of the dish comes from "Pascha", the Eastern Orthodox celebration of Easter.
