Apple Cinnamon Stuffed French Toast

8 oz cream cheese softened
20 slices white bread
10 eggs
1 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 cups cream or half & half
1/2 cup Vermont maple syrup
10 Granny Smith apples
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon
1 tbl butter

To make the compote, peel the apples and cut into small pieces. In a large bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon butter. Heat in microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and stir. Heat again for another 3 minutes. Set aside 1/4 of the amount for stuffing toast. Wrap and refrigerate compote for the morning.

To prepare the toast, grease a 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish. Make toast "sandwiches" by spreading
cream cheese on a bread slice and then a heaping tablespoon of compote. Place another bread
slice on top and cut off crusts. Mix eggs, syrup, melted butter, and cream until frothy. Pour over sandwiches; cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until browned. Reheat compote in the microwave and stir. Cut French toast into squares and serve with warm compote drizzled over sandwiches. Serves 6.
