How to make Pumpkin Pie Bombs

The easiest way to make this recipe is with canned crescent rolls.  The dough is already rolled out, and you just need to fill it with the pumpkiny filling, top with cinnamon sugar, bake it, and then finish it with a sweet icing drizzle. 

Step 1 – Preheat Oven and Make Your Filling

The first step is to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray. 

To make the pumpkin pie filling, you’ll start by using your hand mixer and a medium bowl and beating your room temperature cream cheese, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until well combined.

Now, mix your pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice into the cream cheese mixture.  Finally, beat in the egg and vanilla extract until evenly combined. 

Step 2 – Prep Your Dough

Next, pop open your crescent roll dough, roll it out and separate into four rectangles. Seal the perforations between the triangles with your fingers and cut each rectangle in half to make eight fairly even squares. Spread out into somewhat of a circle.

Step 3 – Make Your Pumpkin Bombs

Place a little pumpkin pie filling in the center of each square of dough. Pick up the corners of the dough and pinch them together.  Try not to let filling spill out if you can.  Seal all sides together and roll it gently between your palms to form a ball. Do this for all eight bites. Place in muffin cups seam side down.

Step 4 – Make Your Cinnamon Sugar Topping and Bake

Melt the butter in the microwave. In a small bowl combine granulated sugar and cinnamon.  Now, brush each bite with melted butter and then sprinkle each ball with cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown and the smell of pumpkin pie wafts through the house! Let cool for about 5 minutes and then carefully remove from the muffin tin and place on a rack to cool fully.

Now it’s time to make the finishing touch – the sweet icing.  Place powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and mix to combine. Drizzle over Pumpkin Pie bombs and serve warm. Wow! So good!

Can You Freeze Pumpkin Pie Bombs?

Yes, this recipe freezes well, so you can grab one (or two) anytime this fall or winter and be completely satisfied with the burst of pumpkin spice flavor with a dash of cinnamon sugar.

Simply flash freeze your Pumpkin Bombs (freeze individually), and once frozen, place in an airtight container until ready to use. They will last in the freezer about 3 months. 

To defrost, place in refrigerator overnight and then reheat, or place in microwave for 30 second intervals until defrosted. Caution, the center will be hot if you use this method.

Supplies Used to Make This Pumpkin Dessert

Muffin Tin [7] – makes the perfect baking well for placing your Pumpkin Pie Bombs.

Cutting Board [8] – a good quality cutting board makes it easy to slice your dough. We like non-plastic ones.

Silicone Basting Brush [9] – makes brushing butter or savory and sweet sauces a breeze.

Equipment

  • muffin pan

Ingredients

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 3 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar (divided)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Icing

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 8 cavities of a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Using your hand mixer and a medium bowl, beat your cream cheese, 1/2 cup less 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, and brown sugar until well combined. Mix pumpkin puree, salt and pumpkin pie spice into the cream cheese mixture. Beat in egg and vanilla extract until evenly combined.
  • Open a can of crescent rolls, roll it out and separate into 4 rectangles. Seal the perforations between the triangles with your fingers and cut each rectangle in half to make 8 fairly even squares.
  • Place about 1- 1½ tablespoon of pumpkin pie filling in the center of each square of dough. Pick up the corners of the dough and pinch them together. Try not to let filling spill out. Seal all sides together and roll it gently between your palms to form a ball. Do this for all 8 bites — place in prepared muffin cups, seam side down.
  • Melt butter in microwave. In a small bowl combine 1 tablesppon reserved granulated sugar and cinnamon. Brush each bite with melted butter and then sprinkle each ball with cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes and then carefully remove from muffin tin and place on a rack to cool fully.

Icing Glaze

  • To make icing, place powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and mix to combine. If your icing is too runny, add more sugar until you reach desired consistency. Drizzle over Pumpkin Pie bombs and serve warm.

Notes

  • Make sure you use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling in this recipe. 
  • Don’t forget to take your cream cheese out of the refrigerator to let it soften before you need it for this fantastic dessert. 
  • for the dough, we used the Grands size crescent rolls, and they seem to be a perfect size. 
  • Make sure to place your bites in the muffin cups seam side down so that the filling doesn’t escape during baking.
