Mascarpone is a soft and light, sweet, triple-cream cheese. If not available, use whipped neufchatel.


4 ounces mascarpone cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon butter
1 large apple, diced with skin on
1 egg
1/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
8 slices cinnamon raisin bread


  1. Combine mascarpone, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup and walnuts; mix well. Melt butter in a small nonstick skillet. Add apples and cook until tender. Remove apples.
  2. Whisk together egg and milk. Dip bread in egg mixture; cook bread on both sides in nonstick skillet until golden brown.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon mascarpone mixture on one side of each of 4 slices of bread; top with cooked apple and remaining bread slices.
  4. Cook until apple filling is thoroughly heated. Serve with maple syrup.
