More like a scrumptious dessert than a main dish, this rich French toast is topped with a tangy raspberry sauce and a vanilla sauce that includes ice cream. I cut the croissants into shapes with a cookie cutter for my 4-year-old grandson, Patrick. He even asks for the "ice cream sauce" on pancakes! —June Dickenson Philippi, West Virginia

"Loved it although I had no idea what I was suppose to do with the white cream sauce at first. I decided place the toast in a little pool of the cream sauce and add the berries on top and the mixture with the berries and cream was like heaven."
