Ingredients:
1/2 8 oz pk cream cheese
1 Granny smith apple, peeled
quartered and cored
2/3 Cup(s) Finely chopped walnuts
3 Tablespoon(s) Light-brown sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Butter
5 Tablespoon(s) Plus 1/2 C sugar
2 Eggs
1/4 Cup(s) Heavy cream
1 Tablespoon(s) Applejack or brandy
1/8 Teaspoon(s) Ground nutmeg
1/8 Teaspoon(s) Ground cinnamon
1/8 Teaspoon(s) Ground mace
4 3/4 Inch slices challah or
brioche
2 Teaspoon(s) Lemon Juice
Fresh mint sprigs, opt.
Directions:
Make cream-cheese spread: In food processor fitted with chopping
blade, process cream cheese, 2 apple quarters, 2 T walnuts, and the
brown sugar until pureed. Refrigerate until ready to use on the toast.
Make walnut brittle: In small sauce-pan, melt 1/2 T butter over low
heat. Stir in 2 T walnuts and 5 T sugar. Cook, stirring constantly,
until sugar carmelizes or turns golden brown-about 10 minutes. Remove
from heat and immediately pour mixture onto lightly greased baking
sheet. Let cool completely. Break into pieces when cool. Make French
toast: Heat oven to 350'F. In medium bowl, combine eggs, 1/2 C heavy
cream, the applejack, nutmeg, cinnamon, mace, and remaining walnuts.
Soak bread in mixture, turning to coat both sides of slices. Set
aside. Meanwhile, make caramel sauce: In small saucepan, over
medium-low heat, cook remaining 1/2 C sugar and the lemon juice until
sugar carmelizes or turns golden. Reduce heat to low and gradually
whisk in remaining 1/4 C heavy cream until well mixed. Keep sauce wann
over low heat. In large skillet, melt 1/2 T butter; add bread slices
and cook until golden brown on both sides. Transfer slices to a baking
sheet. Cut slices in half diagonally. Divide cream-cheese spread
evenly among the slices. Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese spread
is wartn. Meanwhile, thinly slice remaining apple quarters. In same
skillet, melt remaining butter and saute apple slices. To serve, pour
caramel sauce onto 2 plates. Place 4 half-slices French toast
diagonally on each plate and top with sauteed apple slices. Sprinkle
walnut brittle over top. Garnish plates with fresh mint sprigs, if
desired. Nutritional information per serving-protein: 28 grams; fat:
