Almond Filled Crescents

1 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 eggs
3 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
7 oz almond paste
3/4 cups butter (room temperature)

Easy Glaze Ingredients:

1 cups confectioners sugar
6 – 7 tsp milk

For crescents, combine first three ingredients in large bowl with spoon. Fold in flour, baking powder and salt (mixture will be stiff).

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Break apart almond paste into smaller pieces in medium bowl then add butter. Mix on low speed until combined then mix at higher speed until fluffy. (Please note that bits of almond paste will be visible). On a floured surface, roll 1/4 of dough into a 10-inch circle. Gently spread 1/4 almond paste mixture (approximately 1/2 cup) covering circle. Slice into 12 wedges. Beginning at the rounded edges, gently roll wedges to form crescent. Place with points underneath on an ungreased baking sheet. Follow procedure with rest of dough and almond mixture. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from sheet and cool before decorating with glaze.
