    Fat free cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 TBSP of grated orange peel
    2 Tubes (8 oz ea) refrigerated crescent rolls
    1/3 cup sliced almonds
    1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 TBSP orange juice


Beat cream cheese, sugar and orange peel until blended; set aside. Unroll both tubes of dough; press perforations and seams together to form two rectangles. Overlap rectangles at one end and press the seam to seal. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges. Sprinkle with 2/3 of the almonds.
Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; pinch ends together to form a ring. With scissors, cut from outside edge 2/3rds of the way toward center of rind at 1- in. intervals. Separate strips slightly; twist to allow filling to show.
Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing from pan to a wire rack. Combine confectioners' sugar and orange juice; drizzle
over warm coffee cake. Garnish with the remaining sliced almonds.
Slice how you like. I usually make 12 servings out of this coffee cake.

    I made this for work and one for home. I used splenda, weight watchers cream cheese and the 1/2 fat rolls. Put some sliced oranges in the middles and some orange mint to top it off. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!! Everyone lived it - 6/10/08

    This is a delightfully yummy recipe; however, the calorie count is off... check the ingredients list. The crescent rolls are entered as 1 serving rather than 16! Makes quite a difference.

    I made this for Christmas morn. Yum. Correct cal count 205 per 1/12th.
