Apple Pie Stuffed French Toast

We tried this French Toast over the weekend. Our oldest, who isn't usually a fan of French Toast, really enjoyed it. The flour added a crispness to the outside that you just don't get with the usual custard batter that I use. This recipe was adapted from Cook's Country.

pple Pie Stuffed French Toast

Serves 6

4 ounces cream cheese , softened

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

3 tablespoons apple butter

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

12 slices sandwich bread
2 large egg
1 cup cold water

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Maple syrup for serving

1. Combine cream cheese, sugar, apple butter, and cinnamon in medium bowl. Spread on 6 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices, pressing down gently, forming 6 sandwiches.

2. Combine eggs, water, flour, and vanilla in shallow pie plate. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Dip both sides of 2 sandwiches in batter and place in skillet. Cook until deep golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining butter and bread. (I used an electric griddle and cooked all 6 at once.)
