Combine cherries, water, and 1/4 cup sugar in a small saucepan; bring to a

stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in almond extract. Let cool.

Heat milk over medium-high heat in a heavy saucepan to 180 degrees or until
tiny bubbles form around edge. (Do not boil.) Remove from heat; add potato
and margarine, stirring until margarine melts. Let cool until very warm

milk mixture; stir until smooth. Add 2 cups flour; stir until a stiff dough

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and
elastic (about 8 minutes); add enough remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a
time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands. Place dough in a large bowl

warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Punch dough down, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead
lightly 4 to 5 times. Roll dough into a 16 x 8-inch rectangle. Place on a
baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spread cherry mixture lengthwise
down center third of dough. Make diagonal cuts, 1 inch apart, on opposite
sides of filling to within 1/2 inch of filling. Fold strips alternately
over filling from each side, overlapping at an angle. Cover and let rise in
a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in
bulk. Uncover dough. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with almonds and 1
tablespoon sugar.
