Ok so we make these cherry cheesecake egg rolls pretty often but thought I’d use that idea and make some cherry cheesecake bombs this time (yes, we just made up the name). Filled with the taste of cheesecake, cherries, and a bowl of warm cherry filling to dunk them in it’s a heavenly breakfast or dessert treat you must try for yourself! Here is the recipe and tutorial.

I know, heavenly looking right??!! It is the same idea I’ve made in the past where you mix cream cheese and marshmallow fluff to create an easy cheesecake mix, add your pie filling and wrap it up well before baking. You could use any type of pie filling, blueberry would be amazing too. I use a glass pie plate and a pyrex bowl in the middle so it can all bake together, and be served this way too! Serve it as a breakfast “danish” dish, or for dessert either way it is fun to pull apart and have a yummy surprise inside each piece.
The most important step once you fill the inside of your flattened biscuit is to fold up the sides and pinch all pieces together so it is totally secure and the contents won’t ooze out. Spoon as much filling in as you can so it is as ooey and gooey when done but not so much that when you fold it up and pinch up ends it oozes out. Put folded side you pinched together securely on the bottom so when you’re done it looks like this. Here’s the recipe.
Cherry cheesecake bombs
Cherry cheesecake bombs are a great breakfast treat or dessert using refrigerated biscuits.
- 1 can grands biscuits sweet style is best
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- 1 block cream cheese
- 1 tub marshmallow creme
Use mixer to blend room temp. cream cheese with marshmallow creme.
Flatten a biscuit in your palms and spoon 1 tbsp pie filling and cream cheese mixture into center
Stretch biscuit up and pinch two ends together, stretch other two sides so bottom is pinched and no way for filling to escape.
Put pyrex bowl in middle of pie plate, spray outside and put filled biscuit on outside of bowl.
Do the same for all 8 biscuits
Put remaining pie filling in center glass bowl
Put in oven at 350 for about 25 minutes or until tops are brown and biscuit dough is cooked
Spoon cream cheese mixture on top of filled biscuit and serve, or melt vanilla frosting out of a tub and pour on top.
It is really a fun dish to make if you have brunch at your house, a book club get together, Moms group or just for Saturday breakfast as something different! If you love these cherry cheesecake bombs you’ve got to try our bacon and cheese pull aparts that are made the same way!
