  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix cream cheese, granulated sugar, flour, egg and 1 tsp. almond extract in medium bowl until blended. Add 1/4 cup nuts; mix well.

Place second triangle above first triangle, overlapping long edges by 1/2 inch. Repeat with remaining dough triangles to form candy cane, reversing points of triangles as necessary to make curved candy cane shape at top as shown in photo.

  • Bake 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown. Cool completely.
  • Mix icing sugar, water and remaining almond extract until blended; drizzle over Danish. Sprinkle with remaining nuts.
