Preheat oven to 375* F. Mix first eight ingredients together. Unroll 1 package of crescent dough; do NOT separate. Arrange longest sides of dough across width of 12 x 15 pan (jelly roll). Repeat with remaining package of dough. Press perforations together to seal. On longest sides of pan, cut dough into strips 1-½" apart, 3 inches deep. Spread filing evenly over middle of dough. Sprinkle almonds evenly across filling. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip one turn. Continue alternating strips to form a braid. Tuck ends under to seal at end of braid. Brush egg white over dough using a brush. Bake 25 - 28 minutes or until deep golden brown.
