This was something special for me. I've never heard of it before, but it was a dessert, so it could be very nice. I am a dessert girl. It took two small packages of cream cheese and cream. We don't have heavy cream in Holland, so I used half and half cream and followed the recipe. I also didn't have the molds (it's not a very common dessert here), so I used a plastic mold, which I could leave slightly open on the bottom and a cheese cloth. I think it did the thrick. The texture on my Coeur a la creme is the same as on the picture in Dories book. One down. Then for the taste. I liked it a lot. It has a thick creamy texture, and I think a lot of calories. Two down. I ate it with blue berries, they are quite healthy with lots of vitamin C. That's a great opposite to the calories and a healthy snack. Will I make it more often. I don't think my weight can handle this to often. But it was a great treat for valentines day and it did look great!!
And as you can see, I do have my own copy of the book!!
