CRÈME BRÛLÉE FRENCH TOAST
Combine the butter, corn syrup and 1 cup brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until the butter is melted, stirring frequently. Pour over the bottom of a 1-quart baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the bread slices over the brown sugar mixture so that the bread fits snugly in the dish.
Whisk the eggs, cream, salt, Vanilla Extract and Grand Marnier in a bowl. Pour evenly over the bread. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and chill for 8 hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle 1/2 cup brown sugar over the top of the layers. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
TROPICAL FRUIT PARFAIT
Combine the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, milk and orange extract in a mixing bowl and beat using an electric mixer. Alternate layers of the cream cheese mixture and the fruit in a trifle dish or parfait glasses by either spooning the cream cheese mixture or piping with a pastry bag. Approximately 3/4 cup of each fruit choice allows for 2 tablespoons per layer in parfait glasses.
