Ingredients

1 15-ounce package refrigerated pie crusts
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup whipping cream
2/3 cup hot fudge ice cream topping
1 21-ounce can cherry filling and topping


Allow both crust pouches to stand at room temperature 15 to 20 minutes. Remove one crust from pouch; unfold. Press out fold lines.


If crust cracks, wet fingers and push edges together. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon flour over crust. Turn crust, floured side down, on ungreased cookie sheet. Using paper pattern as guide, cut crust into heart shape.* Generously prick heart crust with fork. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven 9 to 11 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool. Repeat with the remaining crust.


Combine cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and almond extract in a small bowl; beat until smooth. Add whipping cream and beat until thickened.


To assemble, place one heart-shaped pie crust on serving plate; spread with 1/3 cup of the hot fudge. Carefully spread half of cream cheese mixture over hot fudge. Spoon 2/3 of the cherry filling over cream cheese. Spread second crust with remaining hot fudge and place over filling. Carefully spread with remaining cream cheese mixture. Spoon remaining cherry filling about 1 inch from edge. Refrigerate until serving time. Store any remaining torte in refrigerator.


Makes 8 to 10 servings.
