🥣How to Make Blueberry Bombs

  1. Prepare the canned biscuits: Open the refrigerator biscuits and separate them into two pieces. Flatten each biscuit into a thin circle using a rolling pin or your hands.
  2. Fill the blueberry bombs: Place a spoonful of blueberry pie filling in the center of each flattened biscuit. Be careful not to overfill, as this could cause the filling to leak during cooking.
  3. Seal the biscuits: Fold the edges of the biscuit dough over the filling and pinch them together firmly to hold the blueberry filling inside.
  4. Air fry: Place the blueberry bombs in the air fryer, leaving space between each one for air circulation. Cook them for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and flaky.
  5. Coat with sugar: Brush the cooked pie bombs with butter and sprinkle them generously with sparkling sugar.

🍴Serving Ideas

  • Dust with powdered sugar: If you don’t have sparkling sugar, dust your blueberry bombs with a light coating of powdered sugar.
  • Serve with a scoop of ice cream: Who doesn’t love the combination of warm, gooey blueberry filling and cold, creamy ice cream?
  • Drizzle with a lemon glaze: Add a zesty twist to your blueberry bombs. Try drizzling them with a lemon glaze. To make the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth. Then, drizzle it generously over your blueberry bombs for a tangy-sweet flavor combination.
  • Pair with fresh fruit: Enhance the fruity goodness of your blueberry bombs by serving them alongside a fresh fruit salad or a beautiful fruit platter.

💭How to Store Your Blueberry Bombs

If you have any blueberry bombs left over, let them cool completely before storing them.

Then place them in an airtight container and store them at room temperature. For the best taste and texture, enjoy your blueberry bombs within 2-3 days of making them.

⭐Tips

Be sure to check out the step by step instructions

  • I’ve found that the Pillsbury Grands work well in this recipe, but feel free to experiment with different brands to find your favorite. Biscuits with flaky layers work best.
  • Sprinkling your blueberry bombs with sparkling sugar adds a lovely touch of sweetness and texture. While I love using sparkling white sugar, get creative and try different colors or flavored sugars.
  • Spray the basket with cooking oil or use parchment paper in the bottom to prevent sticking.
  • Don’t overfill the biscuits with filling, or you might have an explosion in your air fryer. One tablespoon per pie bomb is the right amount to use.

📝FAQ

Can I use other fruit fillings?

Absolutely! If blueberries aren’t your thing or you’re just in the mood for something different, feel free to substitute with another fruit pie filling. Cherry, apple or even lemon curd would all make fantastic alternatives. Just make sure to adjust the sugar levels accordingly if the filling is significantly sweeter or more tart than blueberry.

Can I bake these blueberry biscuit bombs in a regular oven?

Yes, you can bake blueberry bombs in a conventional oven if you don’t have an air fryer. Preheat your oven to 375°F and bake the bombs on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown and flaky. Remember that the cooking time may vary, so keep a close eye on them to avoid over-baking.
