How to Make Air Fryer Blueberry Pie Bombs
Air Fryer Blueberry Pie Bombs have all of the tastes of a homemade berry pie without all of the work. Making these with canned blueberry pie filling and canned biscuit dough gets it done quickly.
First, gather your ingredients. You’ll need just 4 ingredients for this delicious snack!
Grand biscuits – Canned or Homemade or Crescent rolls, Crescent dough
Blueberry pie filling – Canned or Homemade
Butter – melted
How to Make Blueberry Pie Bombs
Preheat the air fryer for five minutes while you prepare the blueberry pie bombs. Gently pull apart each biscuit, creating two fairly even layers of dough.
Work quickly while the dough is still cold. Once the dough starts to warm up to room temperature, it becomes much more difficult to separate the layers evenly.
Using a rolling pin or the palm of your hand, flatten each layer into a 4″ circle. Spoon a tablespoon or so of berry pie filling into the center of the circle.
Use your fingers to pinch the dough together, sealing the blueberry pie filling within the biscuit dough. Roll the dough into balls.
Brush all sides of the bombs with the melted butter, and roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Can I Use a Different Kind of Pie Filling?
If you are craving pie bombs with another flavor, try them with apple pie filling, raspberry pie filling, or any of your favorite pie fillings!
Reheating Blueberry Pie Bombs
If you have leftovers, which isn’t likely, store them in the fridge covered for up to 2 days. Reheat for about 2 minutes at 300° in an air fryer.
No Air Fryer? No Problem!
Can I Bake Blueberry Pie Bombs in the Oven?
Yes! To bake the pie bombs in the oven, follow the same instructions up to cooking them in the air fryer.
Preheat the oven to 375F. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place them onto a baking sheet leaving them about 2″ apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the bombs get nice golden brown color. They may not get quite as golden brown as cooking them in an air fryer, but they are still a yummy dessert!
Serve warm, so the berry filling is soft and gooey!

- Spray the air fryer basket or racks with oil to keep the bombs from sticking. Lay bombs in single layer of air fryer basket or racks.
- Make sure to space them out so they aren't touching & have room to rise & expand (about 2 inches apart). Cook in batches, depending on how many you can fit in your basket.
- Air Fry at 330°F for about 6-7 minutes. Gently wiggle the bombs to loosen from the baskets.
