Ingredients

  • 5 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 16 diagonally cut slices (1/2 inch thick) French bread

  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • Maple-flavored syrup, if desired

Steps

    In small bowl, mix cream cheese and marmalade until blended. Spread 8 slices of the bread with cream cheese mixture. Top each with 1 of the remaining bread slices, making 8 sandwiches.
