Syrnyk - Sweet Ukranian Easter Cheese for #SundaySupper
My family recipe for Syrnyk, a Ukranian sweet cheese, similar to a cheesecake, that we enjoy on Easter as a side dish or light dessert.
- 2 pounds cottage cheese
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 13 x 9 inch pan.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
Pour into the pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until lightly browned on the edges and nearly set (it will still jiggle slightly in the center).
Cool to room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator before serving.
