  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray.
  1. Prepare the Cherry Filling:
  • Drain any excess liquid from the cherry pie filling and transfer it to a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
  1. Prepare the Crescent Dough:
  • Unroll the refrigerated crescent roll dough onto a clean surface. Separate the dough into triangles along the perforated lines.
  1. Assemble the Cherry Pie Bombs:
  • Spoon a small amount of cherry pie filling onto the wide end of each crescent roll triangle.
  1. Roll Up the Bombs:
  • Roll up each crescent roll triangle, starting at the wide end and tucking the edges to seal in the cherry filling. Place the rolled-up bombs seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  1. Brush with Butter:
  • Brush the melted unsalted butter over the surface of each Cherry Pie Bomb.
  1. Sprinkle with Sugar and Cinnamon:
  • In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the Cherry Pie Bombs.
  1. Bake the Bombs:
  • Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the Cherry Pie Bombs are golden brown and puffed up.
  1. Cool and Dust with Powdered Sugar:
  • Remove the Cherry Pie Bombs from the oven and let them cool slightly on the baking sheet. Once cooled, dust them with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.
  1. Serve and Enjoy:
