This is SO completely yummy, it's scary. A friend of mine had this for Mother's Day and posted the recipe on her blog. I had to try it. So here it is..........

the goods:

4 large day-old croissants

3/4 c. milk

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

2 T. butter

3 T. powdered sugar

  1. Slice the croissants in half lengthwise.
  2. Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into a shallow dish. Dip croissant halves into egg mixture, coating well.
  3. Melt 1 T. butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 4 croissant halves, and cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until a golden brown.
  4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar; top with sweetened whipped cream and fresh strawberry syrup.

1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced

1/2 c. sugar

1/4 c. orange liqueur or orange juice
