The apricot sauce is supplemented by a splash of dessert wine, but the real star of this apricot dessert is the couers a la creme (made with cream, mascarpone cheese, and berry liqueur).

  • Meanwhile, for apricot sauce, in a small saucepan combine apricot jam, wine, and the 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Cook and stir just until jam is melted. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Instructions Checklist
  • To serve, unmold individual desserts onto four dessert plates (or unmold large dessert onto a serving plate); remove cheesecloth. Spoon apricot sauce around desserts to cover bottoms of plates. If desired, drop the 2 tablespoons cream by 1/2 teaspoons onto sauce and draw a toothpick through each to form a heart. If desired, garnish with raspberries.
