Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 pkg
cream cheese, room temperature
1 can(s)
cherry pie filling
1
egg, separated
1 c
sugar
1 tsp
almond extract
2 can(s)
refrigerated crescent rolls, the sheet kind
2 Tbsp
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat together cream cheese, egg yolk, sugar and almond extract until smooth.
2
Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray and unroll 1 sheet of crescent dough. If you don't have the sheets, and are using regular crescent rolls, pinch together the perforations.
3
Pour cream cheese mixture over the dough, and then spread the cherry pie filling over that. Top with second crescent dough sheet.
4
Brush the top with the reserved egg white, and sprinkle with sugar. I used a specialty almond/amaretto flavored sugar, but regular white or sparkling sugar would be nice as well.
5
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool on rack and then refrigerate.
6
The filling will be quite runny while warm, but sets up nicely after refrigeration.
