A Russian sweet cheese mold traditionally served at Easter. It consists of a combination of sweetened Pot Cheese (or cottage cheese), nuts (usually almonds) and candied or dried fruit. Classically, this mixture is molded into the shape of a four-sided pyramid. The paskha is decorated with nuts or candy to form the letters XB, which stands for Christ is risen. Paskha is the traditional accompaniment for the sweet yeast bread Kulich.
