Preparation Instructions

Trim the crusts from two round loaves of bread, each 8-inches in diameter. Combine ingredients for each filling separately. Cut loaves crosswise in five slices. Sandwich with the fillings in the order given and re-assemble.

To form hearts, cut a triangular wedge from the top center of the loaf and place this wedge, point outwards, at the opposite side of the loaf. Ditto second loaf.

Gradually beat hot milk into cream cheese until spreadable consistency. Frost loaves with softened cream cheese, smoothing any lumps or bumps in the bread. Cut radishes in wedges and use to outline heart shapes. Refrigerate before serving. Cut in wedges to serve.
