Pastry for double 9" pie crust
1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 14-oz. jar strawberry pie glaze
2 cups fresh raspberries
2 tsp. powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Make a paper pattern for a heart shape, sized about 11" x 10". With paper pattern as a guide, cut crust into 2 heart shapes. Generously prick crust with fork, and flute the edges of the hearts.
Bake the heart crusts, one at a time, at 400 degrees for 9 to 12 minutes or until the crusts are light golden brown. Cool the crusts completely.
In small bowl, combine cream cheese and 1/4 cup powdered sugar; beat until smooth. Carefully place one cooled crust on serving plate and spread with cream cheese mixture.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the pie glaze. Spread remaining pie glaze over cream cheese mixture. Top with second crust, and spread reserved 1/2 cup glaze over the top crust. Arrange raspberries over the glaze and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
