  1. Place a slice of bread on a cutting board. Align a star-shaped cookie cutter in the center of the slice. Push the cookie cutter through the bread, rocking it gently back and forth. Once the cookie cutter makes it all the way through bread, remove bread outside the cutter. Hold the cutter down on the bread during this step to prevent the star from tearing. Use a sharp knife to trim any bread that lingers outside the cookie cutter. Gently remove the star from the cutter and put aside. Repeat on all slices of bread.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, whipping cream, honey, salt, cinnamon, orange zest and vanilla extract.
  3. In a griddle or frying pan, melt the butter over medium high heat.
  4. Dip both sides of the stars in the egg mixture and carefully transfer to the hot griddle. Brown on both sides and transfer to a warm plate while remaining stars cook. Serve hot.

Way too much orange zest. I did not care for it at all though I might try to make it without the orange zest next time because the other ingredients do sound delicious. Sorry.

Just made these this morning, but didn't add the orange zest because of time. I used day-old Hawaiian bread cut in sticks (they were leftover from the dip last night for the Superbowl) and it wa...

Cute and creative! This was a proved to be a nice spin on an old favorite. I love french toast and this was a very tasty new way to prepare it especially with the touch of fruit. I used thick cu...

I loved the taste of it! be sure to cook them over low heat though - they'll burn quickly if it's set too high

Great taste! The orange zest gave it a delicious kick. Watch for too much zest on the last few pieces though.

Used an egg shaped cookie cutter and Texas Toast (several companies make it, Wonder, Aunt Millie etc.). Very good and easy recipe. Will make it again Easter morning. Blueberries and strawberrie...

Great flavor! Rather than waste the rest of the bread, I cooked eggs in the star shaped holes, the same way you would do "eggs in holes!" The kids thought that was a lot of fun.
