I like to surprise my family at breakfast by having heart-shaped French toast on the table. Confectioners' sugar, strawberries and almond butter tastefully top off each bite. —Donna Cline, Pensacola, Florida

  • 6 slices bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract, divided
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 cup butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • Additional confectioners' sugar
  • Sliced fresh strawberries, optional


  1. Cut out bread slices with a 3-3/4-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter; discard trimmings.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine the eggs, milk and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Dip bread on both sides in egg mixture. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Cook bread hearts for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  3. For almond butter, in a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and remaining butter and extract; mix well. Spread 1 teaspoon over each slice of French toast (save remainder for another use). Sprinkle with additional confectioners' sugar and serve with strawberries, if desired.
