In large mixing bowl place cream cheese, egg, vanilla, and 1/4 cup sugar. Beat with electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
Lay out bread in stacks of two on a baking sheet. Spread filling in between each stack to make a sandwich. Place baking sheet in freezer for about ten minutes.
Remove from freezer and trim crusts off bread. Cut each sandwich into three sticks and place all sticks back on baking sheet. Return to freezer for 30 minutes to an hour.
Remove from freezer. Stir together cinnamon and remaining sugar in a small bowl. Place melted butter in another small bowl.
Dip each stick quickly in butter and then cinnamon sugar mixture, turning to coat. Place back on baking sheet. Repeat until all are done. Return to freezer and freeze for one hour. After they are completely frozen, remove from baking sheet and place in zipper seal bag in the freezer until ready to use.
To bake: Place desired number of stuffed cinnamon sticks onto baking sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
Note: For less sweet cinnamon toast sticks, dip only the top and bottom in butter and cinnamon sugar mixture. If you dip all sides (as pictured), you'll need to replenish your butter and cinnamon sugar mixture halfway through.
