from the kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St. John

2 pounds cottage cheese
1/2 pound sweet butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 large egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup ground blanched almonds

Force the cheese through a sieve and set aside.
Cream the butter and sour cream until smooth.
Beat in the the egg, cheese, sugar and almonds.

Line a colander with a napkin. Pour the cheese
mixture into it. Cover with a second napkin.
Place a heavy plate on top. Press down well.
Chill for 24 hours, with a bowl underneath to
catch the draining liquid.

Just before serving gently turn the pashka out
onto a decorative plate.

Garnish with fresh strawberries, blueberries,
