Almond Cinnamon Sticky Rolls

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 to 2 teaspoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease 8 or 9 inch round cake pan. Sprinkle almonds in pan.

In small saucepan, combine remaining topping ingredients; bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture over almonds.

In small bowl, combine 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon, mix well.

Separate dough into 2 long rectangles. Overlap long sides; firmly press perforations and edges to seal. Roll or press out to form 14 x 8 inch rectangle. Sprinkle sugar mixture evenly over dough. Starting at longer side, roll up. Firmly pinch edge and ends to seal. Cut into 1 inch slices; place cut side down over topping. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Invert onto serving plate.

In small bowl combine powdered sugar, almond extract and enough milk for desired drizzling consistency; blend until smooth. Drizzle over rolls. Serve warm.
