Prep Time: 20 min.

Ingredients:

  • Filling:
    • 1-8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  • 1-loaf French bread (1 lb)
  • French Toast
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 cup half-and-half
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Glaze:
    • 1 cup Apricot Preserves
    • 1/2 cup orange juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 225 F.

  1. In a small bowl, blend together ingredients for filling until light and fluffy. Set aside.
  2. Cut bread into 10-12 slices, approximately 1-1/2 inch thick.
  3. Cut a small slice along the top of each piece, creating a pocket in the middle.
  4. Fill with a heaping tablespoon of filling.
