8 ounces fat-free cream cheese, softened
10 medium or 9 large eggs
3 cups fat free half & half
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
Ginger Peach Sauce:
One 20-ounce package frozen peaches
1/4 cup sugar

First make caramel base, cooking brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup until dissolved, stirring constantly. Pour into prepared baking dish and sprinkle evenly with chopped pecans.

Meanwhile (or night before), make the ginger peach sauce. Mix sugar and cornstarch and add apple juice. Heat until cornstarch is clear. Add the butter and blend in maple syrup, ginger, and cinnamon. Add peaches and cook slowly until peaches are soft.

After removing French toast from oven, let sit 5 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm, pouring the ginger peach sauce over the top.
