1/4 c. light butter, melted
1 (10-oz.) French bread baguette, cut into 1"thick slices
1/2 c. raisins
1/4 c. Irish Whiskey
1 3/4 c. skim milk
1 c. sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
1 (12-oz.) can evaporated skim milk
2 (lg.) eggs, lightly beaten
cooking spray
1 T. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Caramel-Whiskey Sauce
1 1/2 c. sugar
2/3 c. water
1/4 c. light butter
2 oz. 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (about 1/2 c.)
1/4 c. Irish whiskey
1/4 c. skim milk


Preheat oven to 350. Brush melted butter on one side of French bread slices, and place bread, buttered sides up, on a baking sheet. Bake bread at 350 for 10 min. or until lightly toasted. Cool. Cut bread into 1/2" cubes and set aside. Combine raisins and whiskey in a small bowl; cover and let stand 10 min. or until soft (do not drain). Combine milk and next 4 ingredients (milk through eggs) in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add bread cubes and raisin mixture, pressing gently to moisten; let stand 15 min. Spoon bread mixture into a 13" x 9" baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine 1 T. sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over pudding. Bake at 350 for 35 min. or until set. Serve warm with Caramel-Whiskey Sauce.

Caramel-Whiskey Sauce: Combine sugar and water in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Cook an additional 15 min. or until golden (Do Not Stir). Remove from heat. Carefully add butter and cream cheese, stirring constantly with a whisk (mixture will be hot and bubble vigorously). Cool slightly, and stir in whiskey and milk.
