Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top.
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down; divide in half.
On a lightly floured surface, roll each half into a 20-in.x 10-in.rectangle.
Place each on a greased baking sheet.
On both long sides of each rectangle, make 2-in.cuts at 1/2-in.intervals.
Spread pie filling down the center of each rectangle; crisscross strips over filling.
Shape and stretch coffee cakes to form right and left halves of heart.
Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes.
Brush dough gently with egg white.
Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.
While warm, brush with butter.
Cool on wire racks.
Combine glaze ingredients.
When coffee cakes have cooled, place heart halves together; drizzle glaze over heart.
