Why have ordinary French toast when you can have it filled with spicy, rich speculoos cookie butter? Warm ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon flavours take your French toast to new levels-and you can make it even better with a dusting of icing sugar or a drizzle of sweet maple syrup. The cookie butter becomes melty when warm, leaving you wanting to lick the plate.

Be sure to use the best quality bread you can for the best results. Speculoos cookie butter can be found in Superstores in the Lower Mainland.

4. Dip the sandwiches into the cream and egg mixture, letting them sit for a few minutes per side to soak up the egg and cream mixture. Hold them over the pie plate for a minute, letting the excess liquid drip back into the pie plate.

5. Cook the French toast sandwiches, a few minutes each side until they are browned. Remove from the pan to a cooling rack in the oven, and let bake for a further 1-2 minutes.

6. Serve cut in half and dusted with icing sugar.
