Preparation steps

1.

For the base: Beat together all the ingredients, then divide among four heart-shaped pans. Bake on bottom rack of preheated oven at 180°C (approximately 350°F) for about 15 minutes. Remove and let cool.

2.

For the topping: Soak the gelatin in cold water. Strain raspberry jam through a sieve into a bowl and mix in the sugar and quark until smooth. Whip the cream.

Squeeze the gelatin well and dissolve in a small pot over low heat, then remove from heat and stir in a little of the raspberry-quark mixture to cool the gelatin. Quickly stir in the remaining quark mixture, then fold in the whipped cream. Once the mixture begins to gel, spread the raspberry cream over the cooled heart cakes. Place cakes in the refrigerator to set for at least 1-2 hours.

For the garnish: Heat the raspberry jam, strain through a sieve and pour into a freezer bag. Run a knife around edge of cakes to loosen, then remove from pans. Snip corner of freezer bag and pipe jam over the cakes. Top with fresh raspberries, sprinkle with pistachios and candy hearts and serve.
