Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line a heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Unroll crescent dough; separate along dough perforations into 16 triangles.
  4. Overlap 8 dough triangles on prepared baking sheet, forming a 10-inch-diameter dough disk that looks like the sun with a hole in the middle.
  5. Press edges together to seal the dough "disk".
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll out almond paste between 2 sheets of waxed paper into a 9-inch diameter disk.
  7. Place almond disk atop dough disk.
  8. Spread jam over almond paste.
  9. Using remaining 8 dough triangles, arrange second 10-inch diameter dough disk atop jam.
  10. Pinch edges of dough disks to seal; tuck edges under.
  11. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  12. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.
  13. While ring is baking, make glaze by stirring powdered sugar, water, and almond extract together in a medium bowl until smooth.
  14. Drizzle half of glaze over warm crescent.
  15. Let glaze set for 10 minutes and then drizzle remaining glaze over.
  16. Decorate with sugar-dipped cherries and small pears, if desired.
