How to Make the Best Cherry Pie Bombs
The beauty of this recipe is that there’s nothing complicated about it! You need only a few simple ingredients and the best part – no rolling pin required!
The recipe starts by filling the pre-made dough with a delicious fruit filling. Any cooking level can make this recipe.
Let’s get started.
After spraying your muffin tin with non-stick spray, open your crescent rolls and pull apart at the perforation. Then you cut the triangles in half width-wise so you have an even amount of dough for each half as you can.
Next, you take one of the pieces and stretch/mold it into a small round to place in the bottom and up the sides of your pan, like a cup that becomes the bottom of your bomb.
Then, take about a tablespoon of cherry pie filling and place it in the middle of the dough.
Take your other half of dough and again form it into a round and place it over the top of the filling. Gently press the edges together so that your filling doesn’t escape.
Do this for the remaining bombs. Now, take your egg wash and brush it over each bomb. Then place them in a 350 degrees oven for about 13-15 minutes.
You know they’re done when they have a nice golden brown exterior. Don’t worry if some of the filling escapes…they taste just as good!
To make icing, place powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl and mix to combine. If your icing is too runny, add more sugar until you reach desired consistency.
Drizzle over cherry pie bombs and watch them disappear!
Tips for Making Cherry Pie Bombs
- This recipe uses Grands size crescent rolls and they seem to be a perfect size.
- If you’re as big a fan of cherries as we are, you may be tempted to overfill the dough. We don’t recommend it as it tends to spill over the edge and your bombs don’t seal as well.
- If you want to use the whole can of cherry pie filling, double the batch.
Can you Freeze These?
If you’re wondering, Cherry Pie Bombs are freezable. So, you can make a batch and freeze them to serve later or grab one and defrost for single serve!
The best method is flash freezing, which means freezing individual Cherry Pie Bombs spread out on a baking sheet or tray, then packing the frozen bombs in an airtight container or freezer bag or wrapping with foil or plastic wrap for longer storage.
Follow our guidelines to Prevent Freezer Burn and you’ll be good to go!
