cherry pie filling

puff  pastry

sliced  almonds

cream cheese

almond extract



powdered sugar

Lightly roll out the puff pastry until it becomes a slight rectangle and is ⅛" thick.

Cut the corners off of the top, and two triangles out from the bottom. Leave a strip in the middle of each side.

Mix together the cream cheese, almond extract and powdered sugar until smooth.

Spread the cream cheese down the center of the pastry, then top with cherry pie filling.

Cut 1cm strips diagonally along each side, almost meeting the filling.

Starting on one end, cross the strips over each other, alternating sides.

Brush the pastry braid completely with egg wash.

Top the egg wash with sliced almonds. Bake completely until golden brown.

Whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and almond extract.

Allow the pastry to cool slightly, then drizzle over the glaze and slice into 1" pieces.
