  • Unroll dough and separate at perforations into eight triangles. Spoon filling onto wide ends of dough triangles; spread slightly. Starting at the wide end of each triangle, roll up dough around filling toward the point. Place, point sides down, on the prepared baking sheet; curve the ends.

  • In a small bowl, combine egg and the water. Brush dough lightly with egg mixture; sprinkle with almonds.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack; cool slightly. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar. Serve warm.
