Bear Claws

2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup almond paste
1 egg, slightly beaten, divided
Dash salt
1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
2 to 4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Combine 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar, almond paste, 2 tablespoons beaten egg (reserve remaining egg for glaze), and salt; beat until smooth.

Unroll dough to form two 13 x 4 inch rectangles. Press perforations to seal. Spread almond mixture lengthwise down center third of rectangles. Fold uncovered dough over almond mixture. Cut each strip into 4 pieces; place on greased cookie sheet, seam side down. Brush surface with remaining egg and sprinkle with 2 to 4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar. On each piece, cut 4 slashes from one folded edge to center, bending dough slightly to separate slashes. Sprinkle tops with almonds. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-15 minutes until golden.

    I have read several excellent stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how so much attempt you set to make any such great informative website.

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
