Heat oven to 450. Allow both crust pouches to stand at room temperature 15 to 20 minutes. Remove one crust from pouch; unfold. Press out fold lines. If crust cracks, wet fingers and push edges together. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon flour over crust. Turn crust, floured side down, on ungreased cookie sheet. Using paper pattern as guide, cut crust into heart shape* Generously poke holes into crust with fork. Bake at 450 for 9 to 11 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool. Repeat with remaining crust.
In small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add milk. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
In small bowl, combine lemon juice and egg yolks; blend well. Add about 1/3 of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture, stirring constantly to blend.
Stir egg yolk mixture into remaining milk mixture in saucepan. Cook an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly. DO NOT BOIL. Stir in 1 tablespoon margarine until melted. Cover; refrigerate until cool.
In small bowl, combine whipping cream and powdered sugar. Beat until firm peaks form. Fold lemon mixture into whipped cream.
To assemble, place one heart-shaped pie crust on serving plate; spread with 1/2 of lemon filling mixture. Top with second crust and remaining filling. Arrange fruit around edge of torte 1/4-inch from edge. In small saucepan, melt chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon margarine. Drizzle over lemon filling on top of torte.
Refrigerate until serving time. Store any remaining torte in refrigerator.
