Almond Danish Swirls
adapted from Paula Deen

8oz cream cheese
1 t almond extract
1/2 c powdered sugar
4 oz sliced almonds
2 cans crescent rolls

3/4 c powdered sugar
4 t milk
1/2 almond extract

In small bowl beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1 t almond extract until fluffy.  Separate 1 can of dough into 4 rectangles.  Spread each with about 2T of cream cheese mixture, starting at the shorter end roll each rectangle into a cylinder, repeat with the other can of dough and remaining filling.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  cut each cylinder into 4 rolls. I use dental floss to cut mine it is much easier than using a knife.  Place each slice  1/2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. 

In a small bowl mix together the glaze.  Pour glaze over each roll using a small spoon.  Place almond slices on top of rolls.
