Christmas French Toast


  • 12 croissants
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Challenge butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Use Christmas tree cookie cutter to cut shapes out of croissants; save leftover croissant scraps to use for stuffing or in a French toast casserole later
  3. Whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon in large bowl
  4. Dip trees into egg mixture and line them up in a loaf pan
  5. Slowly pour extra egg mixture over trees
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes; remove foil and bake for another 20 minutes
  7. Remove from oven and dust powdered sugar on top before serving

Note: You can prepare this ahead of time so it’s all ready on Christmas morning. After covering pan with foil, do not bake and place it in the refrigerator. In the morning, bake as decorated.
