In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, almond extract, and sugar until fluffy. Fold half of the almonds into the cream cheese mixture. Separate dough into rectangles and firmly press the perforation to seal. Press or roll each piece of dough and spread with about 2 tbsp of cream cheese mixture. Start at the short end, roll each rectangle tightly into a cylinder.
Place on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 30 minutes or overnight. (I like to prepare the night before and then it's a piece of cake to pop them in the oven in the morning for breakfast).
When ready, preheat oven to 350, remove from refrigerator and cut each roll into several slices (about 4 to 6 slices from each roll). Place on an ungreased baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the egg white and 1 tsp water, brush over the swirls. Sprinkle with the remaining almonds. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until lightly brown.
