Stuffed French Toast Hearts

Happy Mother's Day! I've been making these the past few years for my momma dukes on Mother's Day, they're always such a hit! You don't need to cut out the shapes, obviously, but I think it just adds a little something extra, and your patrons will appreciate the added touch.
Mix together about 1/2 cup of raspberry preserves with 1 pkg of softened cream cheese.

Take your bread, and make a sandwich with the raspberry cream cheese in the middle.

Use cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes and set aside.
Whisk together 3 eggs and a glug or two of milk, with a tsp of vanilla and cinnamon.
Dunk the heart shaped pieces into the egg mixture, coating both sides.

Put your griddle on, with some melted butter on med-high heat and cook the French Toast about 3 minutes per side, till golden brown on both sides.

Serve with maple syrup and you're done!
There will never be any leftovers with this one!
