  1. Preparation : In a food processor or mixer, place cream cheese, half-and-half, and sugar, and process to soften the cream cheese. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides. Run the machine a few more seconds, then stop and add zest, liqueur, almond paste, nutmeg, and vanilla. Process just until the mixture is thoroughly blended. Remove from the processor and set aside. Butter one side of the challah slices and toast both sides on a grill or under the broiler. Allow toast to cool for a minute, then cut it in half on the diagonal. Spread each toast with a generous amount of cream cheese mixture. Top each of the toasts with about 1/4 cup berries. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve.
