HIC's Coeur A La Creme Dish is specially designed for making the French classic heart-shaped dessert Coeur a la Creme akin to an creamy elegant no-bake cheesecake. French for heart with cream it blends together a sweet decadent mixture of Fromage Frais with cr me fra che or sour cream which is then molded into a heart shape and crowned with fresh berries or other creative toppings. Measuring 7.25-inches with a 24-ounce capacity HIC's Coeur A La Creme Dish makes 6 delicious servings. The footed bottom raises the mold above the resting surface so that liquids can drain away through the perforated bottom allowing the cheese mixture to compact to the ideal creamy consistency. It's super easy to use. Simply place the heart-shaped mold onto a dish or pan with sides to catch liquids that drain off. Spoon in the mixture and place level in the fridge to chill. Follow the recipe directions for proper setting time. Once ready unmold and plate the creamy creation and top with fresh sliced strawberries or raspberries a blackberry caramel or grand marnier sauce or other creative combinations. A tradition since 1957 HIC Fine Porcelain Bakeware and Serveware is safe for use in the microwave oven broiler (to 500-degrees Fahrenheit) and freezer. These ramekins are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
