  1. Make the vanilla whipped cream: In a medium bowl, combine the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and McCormick® Vanilla Extract. Using an electric hand mixer, whip on medium-high speed until thickened and medium peaks form, 3–4 minutes. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Make the salted caramel: Combine the granulated sugar and butter in a small pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, until the butter melts, 2–3 minutes. Once the butter has melted, continue to cook until golden, stirring occasionally. Slowly pour in the heavy cream and whisk until smooth.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the salt and McCormick® Vanilla Extract. Set aside until ready to serve (the caramel will thicken as it cools).
  4. Make the French toast: In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, granulated sugar, egg, salt, and McCormick® Vanilla Extract until smooth. Whisk in the flour and baking powder until incorporated.
  5. Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and grease with nonstick spray. Working in batches, dip the croissant halves in batter, allowing any excess to drip off, then arrange in a single layer in the skillet. Cook until golden brown, 3–5 minutes per side.
  6. Top the bottom croissant halves with a scoop of whipped cream. Cover with the top croissant halves. Drizzle with salted caramel and garnish with the pecans and powdered sugar.
  7. Enjoy!
