Instructions

  1. Preparation of Biscuits: Begin by opening your can of Pillsbury Grand biscuits. Carefully separate each biscuit into two layers. This should give you 16 biscuit circles. Gently pat each layer into a circle approximately 4 inches in diameter.
  2. Adding the Filling: Now, take about 1 tablespoon of the blueberry pie filling and place it in the center of each biscuit circle.
  3. Forming the Bombs: Next, it’s time to shape your biscuit bombs. Use your fingers to bring the edges of the biscuit together over the filling, pinching them to seal securely. You’re aiming for a nice, ball-like shape.
  4. Butter and Sugar Coating: Once your bombs are shaped, brush them generously with the melted butter. This not only adds flavor but also helps the sugar to adhere. Sprinkle each bomb with a bit of granulated sugar for that extra touch of sweetness and texture.
  5. Air Fryer Setup: Before you start cooking, spray the basket of your air fryer with nonstick cooking spray. This helps in preventing the bombs from sticking and ensures an even cook.
  6. Cooking in Batches: Place the prepared biscuit bombs in the air fryer basket, making sure to leave about 2 inches of space between each for even cooking. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches.
  7. Air Frying: Set your air fryer to 330°F (165°C). Cook the biscuit bombs for 7-8 minutes or until they turn a lovely golden brown color. The aroma will be irresistible!
  8. Serving: Serve these delightful blueberry biscuit bombs warm. They are perfect as a sweet treat for breakfast, a snack, or even as a dessert.

Enjoy your homemade blueberry biscuit bombs, a simple yet scrumptious treat that’s sure to delight everyone!

Blueberry Pie Bombs FAQS

Can you make blueberry pie filling and freeze it?

es, you can make blueberry pie filling and freeze it. To do so, prepare the filling as you would for a pie, let it cool completely, then transfer it to a freezer-safe container or bag. It can be stored in the freezer for several months. When you’re ready to use it, thaw the filling in the refrigerator before using it in your pie.

What is blueberry pie made of?

Blueberry pie typically consists of a pie crust and a blueberry filling. The filling is usually made from fresh or frozen blueberries, sugar, a thickening agent (like cornstarch, flour, or tapioca), and often includes flavor enhancers like lemon juice, lemon zest, and cinnamon. Some recipes may also include a small amount of butter.

Is blueberry pie hot or cold?

Blueberry pie can be served either hot or cold, depending on personal preference. It’s often served warm, especially if it’s fresh from the oven, which can help bring out the flavors and makes it a comforting dessert. However, it’s also delicious when served cold, particularly on a hot day or when a firmer pie texture is desired.

Is it better to freeze a blueberry pie baked or unbaked?

Both methods work, but they serve different purposes. Freezing an unbaked blueberry pie can preserve the freshness of the crust and filling, and you can bake it straight from the freezer, which can result in a fresher-tasting pie. Freezing a baked blueberry pie is convenient for ready-to-eat purposes. Just thaw it and serve. The choice depends on whether you prioritize freshness (unbaked) or convenience (baked).

What is the best thickener for blueberry pie?

The best thickener for blueberry pie can vary based on personal preference and the texture you’re aiming for. Common thickeners include:
Cornstarch: It’s a reliable thickener and creates a clear, glossy filling.
Tapioca: Either instant or minute tapioca can give a nice, evenly thickened texture without cloudiness.
Flour: A traditional thickener that gives a more opaque and slightly cloudier appearance to the filling.
Arrowroot: Similar to cornstarch, it thickens well and creates a glossy filling, but it’s less common in stores.
