    • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 tablespoon strawberry preserves
    • a couple fresh strawberries for garnish (sliced)

    • 8 (3/4-inch) slices Italian bread
    • 1/3 cup Land O Lakes Half & Half
    • 2 Eggs, slightly beaten
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/4 cup Land O Lakes Butter

  1. Combine 1/2 cup butter, 1/3 cup powdered sugar and preserves in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
  2. Cut bread slices with a 2 1/2- to 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Combine half & half, eggs and vanilla in 9-inch pie plate; mix well. Dip 4 bread shapes into half & half mixture, turning to coat both sides; let stand 1-2 minutes.

  4. Repeat dipping remaining bread shapes into egg mixture. Melt remaining butter in skillet and cook bread as directed.
  5. To serve, lightly sprinkle hot French toast with powdered sugar; serve with Strawberry Butter.

Quick notes

Spread any remaining Strawberry Butter on bagels or English muffins. – If you do not have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, use a heart-shaped template and sharp knife to cut heart shapes.
