Preheat indoor grill or griddle.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, pinch of salt and sugar until well combined.
Lay 6 slices of bread out and lightly brush egg mixture around edges. Press a "pocket" in the middle of each slice of bread for the filling. Heap 2 teaspoons of apple or cherry pie filling in the middle of each bread pocket.
Take remaining 6 slices and brush the edges with egg mixture. Place on top of bread with filling and seal edges with fingers.
