    Lady Dancer's Note:

    Originally found in Taste of Home magazine, listed as a "runner up" in one of their contests. Submited by Lorene Milligan of Chemainus, British Columbia. As a surprise for a good friend, it was a part of a carry in meal I prepared for her and her family for her birthday and has been requested over and over by everyone who has tried it since. Today I do not cut into a heart shape but instead leave it as a square (to get it to go as far as I can!) Ready made puff pastry sheets make this a breeze to prepare and the appearance is VERY elegant! A real show-stopper!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      On a lightly floured surface, roll each puff pastry sheet into a 12 inch square.
    2. 2
      Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
    3. 3
      (Original recipe calls for: "Using an 11 inch heart pattern, cut each pastry into a heart shape" - either way works well).
    4. 4
      Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. (Do not underbake - it's a good idea to check your oven temperature. If underbaked, the pastry will fall.).
    5. 5
      Remove to wire rack to cool.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, whisk milk and pudding mix until thickened, 1-2 minutes.
    7. 7
      In a mixing bowl, beat cream and 1/2 t vanilla until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold into pudding until consistent color but do not over stir.
    8. 8
      Split puff pastry sheets horizontally with a serrated knife.
    9. 9
      Place one layer on a serving plate and top with 1/3 of the pudding mixture.
    10. 10
      Repeat twice.
    11. 11
      Top with remaining pastry.
    12. 12
      In a small bowl combine confectioners sugar, water, almond extract and remaining vanilla and stir until smooth. (If necessary you can use a few drops more water if you find it difficult to spread but do not thin too much or you lose the white color which adds to its appearance).
    13. 13
      Carefully spread over top of dessert.
    14. 14
      Melt chocolate chips and shortening. Pipe in diagonal lines in one direction over frosting (if you don't have tips for piping, place in a plastic zip lock baggie,seal the bag and cut a small piece off the corner of the baggie to do the piping).
    15. 15
      Refrigerate until set - (remove from fridge about 15-20 minutes before serving to soften the top for easy cutting)
    16. 16
      This holds well overnight but we never seem to have any leftovers to keep any longer than that!

      I actually mistakingly bought phyllo dough for this and it turned out amazing. I am making it again tonight with the puff pastry and I am sure it will turn out even more fantastic!

      I got this recipe from Taste of Home, too, and people say it is the best dessert they've tasted in years! I don't cut it into a heart shape, either, and I just drizzle the icing over the top with a large spoon rather than try to spread it. EXCELLENT! Draws raves and requests for the recipe every time I serve it.
