Here's a dessert not only for romantic lovers, but for white chocolate lovers, too. The traditional couer a la creme becomes luxuriously creamier and richer with the addition of white chocolate. If you like, serve this dessert with the raspberry puree only.
1/2 pound cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 1/4 cups heavy (whipping) cream, chilled
3 ounces finely chopped white chocolate, melted and tepid
1 10 ounce package frozen raspberries with syrup, defrosted
1/3 cup sugar
1 8 ounce can pitted apricot halves
2 tablespoons amaretto
Line six 1/2 cup heart molds or one large heart mold with enough dampened cheesecloth to overhang edges and enclose the filling completely. Using an electric mixer set at medium speed, beat the cream cheese with the confectioners' sugar and 1/4 cup of the cream in a large bowl. Add the melted white chocolate and beat until completely smooth. Set aside.

Using an electric mixer set at medium speed, whip the remaining cream in a medium bowl until it forms stiff peaks. Fold the cream into the white chocolate mixture. Tap the molds on countertop, fold cheesecloth over top, and refrigerate on a baking sheet six hours to overnight.

FOR RASPBERRY PUREE: In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, puree the raspberries with sugar. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer to remove seeds, if desired.

FOR APRICOT PUREE: In a food processor fitted with metal blade, puree the apricots with their juices and the amaretto.

TO SERVE: Place a generous serving of raspberry puree on one side of each plate. Put two small dollops of apricot puree on the raspberry puree and, using a small knife, draw completely through each dollop to make a heart shape. Unmold the coeur a la creme and set beside the purees.
