And looks good, too:



Cherry Almond Pastry



1 pkg cream cheese

1/4 C sugar

1/2 tsp almond extract

1/4 C slivered almonds

1/3 C chopped maraschino cherries

2 pkg crescent rolls



glaze:

1 C 10x sugar

1-2 Tbsp milk

1 Tbsp butter, melted



Beat softened cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy. Add almond extract. Fold in almonds and cherries. Set aside. Unroll crescents on ungreased cookie sheet, overlapping the long sides to make a 12" square. Seal perforations by pinching together with fingers. Spread cream cheese down center 1/3 to within 1" of top and bottom. Fold top and bottom over filling, and bring long sides over filling (they will overlap). Pinch seam to seal. Bake at 375 degrees 25-30 min. Cool completely on wire rack. Combine 10x sugar, milk, and butter, pour over top. Garnish with slivered almonds and cherries.



I usually use green maraschino cherries (cut into leaf shapes) and red maraschinos to make a holly berry/leaf design on the top, looks really cute.
