Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1 Tablespoon(T)  pure vanilla extract
1 Cup(c)  half and half
3/4 Cup(c)  whole milk
6   large eggs
1/2 Cup(c)  raspberry or apricot jam
1 Pound(lb)  loaf challah, thickly sliced
6 Ounce(oz)  cream cheese, at room temperature
4   large green apples, such as granny smiths, peeled, cored and sliced
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  kosher (coarse) salt
1 Teaspoon(t)  cinnamon, ground
3/4 Cup(c)  light brown sugar, packed
8 Tablespoon(T)  butter, plus extra for greasing the baking pan
1 1/2 Tablespoon(T)  cornstarch
1 1/2 Tablespoon(T)  fresh lemon juice


Combine the lemon juice and cornstarch in a small bowl, stir well, and set aside. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the apples and cook, turning them constantly, until they are beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice mixture and cook until thickened, about 30 seconds more. Set the skillet aside. Spread the cream cheese over the challah slices, and set aside. Butter a 13 by 9 inch baking pan. When the apples have cooled, arrange them evenly in the prepared baking pan. Cover with half of the challah slices, cream cheese side up. If necessary, cut or tear the challah to fill all the spaces. Spread the jam evenly over the challah. Cover with the remaining challah slices, cream cheese side down, again cutting or tearing the challah as needed to fill all the spaces. Whisk the eggs, milk, half and half, and vanilla in a bowl. Pour this mixture over the challah. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. When you are ready to bake the French toast, preheat the oven to 350° F. Sprinkle the casserole with cinnamon sugar and bake, covered, for 40 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until it is puffy and golden, about 20 minutes more. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes. Then cut the French toast into squares, and serve.
