Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and roll out the crescent dough.
In a small bowl whisk together cream cheese and sugar. Spread evenly in the middle third of the dough. Spread cherry filling over the top. One the outer two thirds, cut diagonal lines down each side. Gently fold each piece creating a braid over the top.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg. Brush the beaten egg on the top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the top os golden brown. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes.
To make the glaze whisk together the powdered sugar, milk and almond extract. Drizzle over the top of the braid. Top with slivered almonds. Slice and serve.
