VALENTINE’S DAY: Coeur à la Crème Cheese Course
Say “I love you” with sweetened mascarpone
|If you love mascarpone, the extra-rich “Italian cream cheese” that’s the base of tiramisu, then you might want to whip up a Coeur à la Crème for Valentine’s Day.
The luscious mascarpone creation can serve as a cheese course prior to dessert, or instead of dessert.
You need special heart-shaped ceramic molds, but they can be used throughout the year for other purposes. (With a tiny dish underneath, we use them for tea bags, olive pits and garnishes—for example, to hold croutons for soup.)
