A Monte Cristo has exactly the same vibe. A dusting of powdered sugar plus a sidecar of maple syrup or raspberry jam? Are you sure the maple syrup wasn’t just…part of your imagination? (The powdered sugar and maple syrup combo is a cheeky answer to the French toast–style bread—I’m on Team Jam, but you can sweeten your Monte Cristo however you like.) So when I decided to tackle the Monte Cristo for this formula-based column, I knew I’d need a punchy—and sweet!—slather-able something to give it that extra edge.
