Sweet comfort! This warm, rich dessert is topped with a rum-flavored sauce that is simply divine.

Croissant Bread Pudding
4 large croissants (about 3 ounces each)
1 red baking apple such as Jonathan
6 eggs
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
2 cups half and half
1 orange
1/2 cup pecan halves, chopped
3/4 cup butterscotch caramel ice cream topping
1/4 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 cup golden raisins

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray Deep Dish Baker with nonstick cooking spray.
Slice croissants from top to bottom into 1/2-inch slices. Set aside 16 of the largest slices. Cube remaining slices and place in bottom of baker. Arrange reserved slices over cubes in an overlapping circular pattern. Using Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer, core and slice apple, leaving peel on; cut slices in half. Tuck apple slices between croissant slices. In Classic Batter Bowl, whisk eggs and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Pour half and half into Large Micro-CookerŪ; microwave on HIGH 2 minutes or until hot. Slowly add half and half to egg mixture; whisk using stainless whisk until well blended. Carefully pour egg mixture over croissants. If necessary, lightly press croissants down to coat.
