1 lb   Sugar
1 qt   Crème anglaise (see below)
1 cup   Raisins soaked in Irish mist or water
  • Combine the sugar and butter, spread evenly on the bread slices to make sandwiches, stack together and cut of the crust.
  • Cut the “sandwiches in ½ on an angle (from corner to corner)

Sauce Anglaise
6 each   Egg yolks
2 cups   Sugar
1 each   vanilla bean split or a teaspoon vanilla extract
