Easter Goodies: Па́сха (Paskha) - the lighter version

Па́сха (Paskha) is a traditional Russian Easter dish that is also very popular in Finland. Apart from tvorog, this infamously "dessert" also contains butter, sugar and cream. And dried fruit. It also takes some time to cook as it needs to stand in the refrigerator overnight.

I decided to make a slightly lighter version of this delicious dish. Mainly, I skipped the butter and the sugar, only sticking to vanilla-flavoured quark and cream. Vanilla in itself is so sweet that no sugar is needed. Lemon is essential and so is the dried fruit (in small quantities in this case).

Step 1: wisp the cream + add the quark
Step 2: add the zest + juice from one big lemon
Step 3: add some dried fruit
Step 4: add some decorations
Step 5: put in the fridge for a few hours
Step 6: ENJOY!

I'm not crazy about lemon stuff, but I would try something with lemon in it if you made it. :D
