Prepare hot roll mix according to package directions. Combine cherries, sugar, lemon juice, lemon peel and cinnamon. Mix cream cheese and almond extract. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Flatten into 6-inch rounds. Spoon 1/4 cup cherry mixture onto one half of each round. Top with 1 tablespoon cream cheese and 1 teaspoon almonds. Fold dough in half and seal edges. Pierce tops with a fork to allow steam to escape. Brush with milk; sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon sugar, if desired. Bake at 350F about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8 servings.
**Cinnamon Sugar: Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Makes 1/4 cup.
