Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 14 cup sugar, divided

  • 12 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 14 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 12-2 teaspoons milk

  1. Line a 15 inches x 10-in. baking pan with parchment paper. Unroll crescent dough into prepared pan; seal seams and perforations. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough.
  2. Combine the almonds, butter, extract and remaining sugar; spread lengthwise down center of dough. One each long side, cut 1-in. wide strips about 2 1/2 inches into center.
