|Simple Afternoon Tea|
Company Cinnamon Toast
6 slices good bread, 1" thick
6 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon (in retrospect, I would decrease this to 1 tablespoon)
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
Trim crust from bread and cut each slice into 3 strips. Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a shallow dish. Pour the cream in another shallow dish. Dip the bread strips in cream to coat both sides. Brush strip tops with butter; sprinkle all sides with the sugar/cinnamon mixture to make a thick covering.
Place the bread strips on a rack in a shallow baking pan (this keeps them from sticking to the pan). Bake in a hot oven (400 degrees F. for 20 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 18 strips.
