Cinnamon Bear Toast

Cinnamon Bear Toast

Serves: 2 Prep Time: 5 Minutes Cooking Time: 12 Minutes



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place two slices of bread on a cookie sheet and begin baking for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, add 1 1/2 tablespoons of clarified butter, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, a couple dashes of nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stir until combined.

Remove bread slices from oven, flip the slices over, then spread the cinnamon-sugar mix atop each slice, smoothing the mixture all the way to the edges.

Place bread slices back into the oven for 7 more minutes, until the cinnamon-sugar topping bubbles slightly.

Remove the cinnamon toast from the oven and rest on the cookie sheet to finish toasting and cool slightly, about 2 minutes.

Slice the banana into medallions, place two "ears" and a "nose" atop each slice. Slice the bottom tips off of the strawberries, then slice the tips in half from top to bottom. Arrange the strawberry slices along the bottom edge of the toast to form a red "bow-tie". Finally, place the raisins atop the toast to form the "eyes" the tip of the "nose". Enjoy!
