In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon; mix until smooth. Spread one side of each slice of bread evenly with the cream cheese mixture.
On the cream cheese side of four slices of bread, layer with some sliced strawberries spread evenly over the surface of each slice. Top each slice with a remaining slice of bread, pressing the cream cheese side down onto the strawberries. Press together gently to seal berries inside sandwich.
In a shallow bowl, combine the eggs and milk; mix well and set aside. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with cooking spray and place in oven. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray or melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Dip strawberry sandwiches into the egg mixture, turning to soak each side. Place soaked sandwich in the hot skillet and cook on each side until browned. Remove sandwich from skillet and place on baking sheet in warm oven and repeat until all sandwiches are cooked.
Just before serving, cut each sandwich diagonally; top with remaining strawberries and sprinkle with 2 Tbsps powdered sugar. Serve with warm maple or strawberry syrup.
