10 slices French bread (1/2 inch thick)
5 teaspoons sugar (divided)
6 oz fat-free cream cheese (I use light cream cheese because the consistency is better)
1/2 tsp almond extract
3/4 cup fresh blackberries
3/4 cup fresh raspberries
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 tsp confectioners' sugar
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, almond extract, and 3 tsp sugar.
Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet; lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with 2 tsp of sugar. Broil 3-4 inches from heat for 1-2 minutes or until lightly brown.
Spread cream cheese mix over broiled bread. Top with berries and almonds; dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately.
I use a french baguette instead of french bread - the loaf is smaller around, so the recipe would make 20 servings.
Makes 10 servings
Number of Servings: 10
