  1. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together the milk, eggs, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and zest in a large bowl.
  3. Dip each croissant half fully into the milk mixture and arrange in the baking dish, overlapping the pieces.
  4. Pour the remaining milk mixture over the casserole.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Allow the casserole to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  8. Dust with the powdered sugar and serve immediately.

Recipe Tip: Day-old croissants work best for this recipe! They will soak up the custard better and yield a firmer texture.
