Ingredients For Easy Cherry Pie Bombs

For the Cherry Pie Bombs:

  • 1 package (8 oz) refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup cherry pie filling
  • Oil for frying

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • Unroll the crescent roll dough and cut into 16 squares. Place a small spoonful of cherry pie filling in the center of each square.
  2. Form the Bombs:
    • Fold the dough over the filling, pinching the edges to seal. Make sure they are well sealed to prevent the filling from leaking out during frying.
  3. Fry the Bombs:
    • Heat oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 350°F (175°C). Fry the cherry pie bombs in batches, turning once, until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
  4. Make the Glaze:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk, one teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
  5. Glaze and Serve:
    • While the cherry pie bombs are still warm, drizzle them with the glaze or dip them in the glaze to coat. Let set for a few minutes before serving.
