To cut clean slices, dip a sharp knife into water before each cut.
Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a 9-inch pie pan with 1 pie crust dough and crimp the edges.
Beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and flour in a large bowl at medium-low speed until soft and creamy. Beat in the egg and almond extract at low speed until combined. Spoon into the dough-lined pie pan and gently top with the cherry pie filling.
Using holiday cookie cutters, cut-out shapes from the remaining pie crust dough. Gently place over the cherry filling. Lightly brush the cut-outs with the milk and sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
Bake for 20 minutes. Cover the edges with foil. Continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
