Pull Apart Cherry Bombs

Pull Apart Cherry Bombs were meant to be an easy dessert recipe, but they could totally be served as a sweet breakfast treat!

My good friend challenged me to create a copycat cherry thing-a-lings recipe, which is a popular pastry that a local bakery makes only once a year.

This is totally not the same, but still really delicious!

I’ll still work on that copycat recipe though 😉

How to make Pull Apart Cherry Bombs

This recipe is super easy because we are starting with biscuit dough in a tube.

First separate the biscuits, roll them slightly, and cut each in half.

Then place a frozen cherry in the center and roll into a ball.

Then place them all in a greased 9×13 casserole dish, leaving a little space for them to puff up as they bake.

Put this dish into a 350 degree oven for 23 to 26 minutes.

As they bake we will make the cherry sauce that will go over top.

First chop the rest of the frozen cherries.

Then add two cups of powdered sugar.

Bring this to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove the cherry stuffed biscuits from the oven and spoon the cherry sauce over top.

Ingredients

  • 1 8 count package/tube jumbo biscuits (mine were the flaky, butter flavor)
  • 1 16 ounce bag frozen cherries
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Separate the biscuits and roll each one slightly with a rolling pin and cut each in half.

  2. Put one frozen cherry in the center of each half piece of biscuit dough and fold it closed/ roll into a ball.

  3. Dip each into the melted butter and roll in the sugar to coat, place in a greased 9×13 casserole dish with some space between each. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 23 to 26 minutes.

  4. Chop the remaining frozen cherries and put them in a saucepan over high heat. Add the powdered sugar, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer 12 to 15 minutes.

    Note: I did this while the biscuits were baking in the oven.

  5. Spoon the cherry sauce over the cherry biscuit bombs and serve while still warm.
