  • Unfold pastry, and roll out on a lightly floured surface into a 14-inch square; cut in half.

  • Press almond mixture gently and evenly over one rectangle. Place the remaining rectangle on top of filling.

  • Cut pastry crosswise into fourteen 1-inch-wide strips; cut each strip in half to make 28 pieces.

  • Twist each piece twice. Place the twists about 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Lightly beat egg white, and brush evenly on each twist. Sprinkle evenly with granulated sugar.

  • Bake at 400° for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Serve with Chocolate Dipping Sauce, if desired.
