DIRECTIONS

  • Coarsely chop croissants; distribute evenly in greased 13X9 inch casserole dish.
  • Combine cream cheese, butter, and 1/3 cup maple syrup; spread evenly over chopped croissants.
  • In large bowl, beat eggs, ½ cup maple syrup, and half-and-half; pour over mixture.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • In the morning, remove from refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Uncover and bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden. (It will be very light and puffy; let it sit for 5-10 minutes while you make the sauce; once it settles down a little, you will be able to pour the sauce and put nuts on it more easily.).
  • In small saucepan, heat ½ cup butter and ½ cup maple syrup and pour over warm soufflé.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and chopped pecans.
