  • Summary

    Long an Easter favorite in the Kostyra family, this sweet, creamy dessert is made with farmer cheese instead of cream cheese. Mild and slightly tangy, farmer cheese is a soft cheese from which most of the liquid has been slowly pressed; it retains much of its moisture because of the slowness of the pressing process.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    • 3 large egg yolks
    • 3 tablespoons sour cream
    • Ice water, if necessary
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 large egg white
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 1/2 pounds farmer cheese, passed through the fine filter of a food mill
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • Grated zest of 1 orange
    • Grated zest of 1 lemon
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup golden raisins
