Lemon Blackberry Tortilla French Toast


1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
6 tablespoons lemon curd, divided
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
3 tablespoons butter
6 flour tortillas (6 inches)
1-1/3 cups fresh blackberries
1/4 cup seedless blackberry spreadable fruit


1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, 3 tablespoons lemon curd, lemon zest and extract until fluffy. Set aside.
2. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, cream and remaining lemon curd until blended; stir in poppy seeds. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Dip both sides of tortilla in egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place in skillet; toast until golden brown, 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining tortillas, greasing pan as needed.
3. Spread about 3 tablespoons cream cheese mixture over each tortilla to within 1/4 in. of edges. Fold tortillas in half over filling. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine blackberries and spreadable fruit; microwave, covered, at 50% power until warmed, 2-3 minutes, stirring once. Serve with tortillas and, if desired, additional lemon zest.
