1Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough and roll into 12x8-inch rectangle. Trim dough to 10x8- inch rectangle; reserve dough scraps. Spread 1/4 cup of the preserves in 6-inch circle on center of dough rectangle; sprinkle with almonds. Place cheese on center of dough; spread with remaining 1/4 cup preserves. Press dough evenly around cheese and press to seal completely.
