These sweet squares are easy to fix, thanks to the refrigerated crescent roll dough that serves as the crust!

Ingredients

  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup almond paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup halved green grapes
  • 2 kiwifruit, peeled, quartered and sliced
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves, warmed
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Directions

  1. Unroll crescent dough and separate into eight rectangles. Place in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Press onto bottom and up sides; seal seams and perforations. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.
  2. Bake at 375° for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, almond paste, extract and remaining sugar until smooth. Spread over crust. Top with fruit. Brush with preserves; sprinkle with almonds.
