Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 2-quart casserole baking dish, set aside.

Place croissant pieces in a large bowl and cover with milk. Let soak for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 6 tablespoons butter adding 3/4 cup sugar. Add peach slices and cook for 2-3 minutes to release the juices. Strain into a bowl, reserving juices.

In a bowl whisk together eggs, 1-cup sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour over bread and milk and stir to combine. Gently fold in peach slices. Spoon mixture into prepared casserole dish. Place dish into a 2-inch deep pan and fill with very hot water to come halfway up sides of dish.

Bake until pudding is puffy and firm when pressed, about 50-60 minutes.

Simmer reserved peach juices until steaming, add orange liqueur. Serve pudding warm with peach sauce and whipped cream.
