How-To make Pumpkin Stuffed French Toast:

  • Start by cutting white bread into pumpkin shapes using the top of the bread as the bottom of the pumpkin. I used kitchen shears.
  • Spread one slice of bread with room temperature cream cheese and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.
  • Use a small paint brush and dark molasses. Just paint on the pumpkin details with the molasses. 
  • Put the molasses-painted pieces of bread in the toaster. Yes, in the toaster.
  • Toast the bread until it gets a little dry, just to set the "paint." Don't brown it, just dry it out so that the molasses does not come off in the custard. Don't put the pieces with the cream cheese in the toaster!
  • Place two pieces of bread together with the cream cheese in the middle and squish them together, gently.
  • Dip the bread in French toast custard and cook as you would regular French toast. I put toothpicks in to hold the "stems" in place, but it really wasn't necessary.
  • Cook the french toast slowly so that the center gets done, the cream cheese melts, but that the outside doesn't get too brown.
  • Serve with maple syrup.
  • Add a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
  • And a smile on your face! Happy Fall Y'all!
