Unroll dough and divide into 4 long rectangles.

Press until it forms a square, measuring 13" by 13".

Spread, in a 5 inch wide strip down center of dough and within 1 inch of ends, cream cheese mixture.

Fold 1 inch ends over cheese filling.

Bring sides over filling, overlapping edges and pinch edges to seal.

Glaze: combine ingredients then spoon over top of bread.

Garnish with more cherries and almonds if desired.

Makes 12 to 14 servings - refrigerate leftovers.
