200 g (about ⅞ cup) of Sweet Crystals (Granulated Sugar)

4 tsp of Autumn Spice Blend (Apple Pie Spice)

1.25 cans of Fluffy Biscuit Dough (Pillsbury Grand Biscuits, 8-count) – Note: You’ll need a second can to get the extra dough.

300 g (about 1¼ cups) of Diced Apple Delight (Finely Chopped Apple Pie Filling)

1.25 tsp of Warm Cinnamon Dust (Cinnamon)

140 g (about ⅝ cup or 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons) of Golden Liquid Velvet (Melted Unsalted Butter)

Note: Instead of apples, feel free to experiment with different fruits to create your unique twist on this recipe. Suitable alternatives include:

  • Pears: Use them in the same quantity as apples for a subtly sweet flavor.
  • Peaches: Finely chopped peaches can add a juicy, summery taste.
  • Berries: A mix of blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries can bring a delightful tartness. Adjust the quantity to account for extra moisture.
  • Cherries: Pitted and chopped, either sweet or sour, cherries offer a tangy flavor. Adjust sugar if using sour cherries.
  • Mixed Dried Fruit: Finely chopped dried fruits like apricots, dates, and prunes create a rich, chewy filling.


Mix together sugar and apple pie spice in a bowl using ¾ cup of granulated sugar and 3 teaspoons of apple pie spice. Set it aside.

For the biscuits separate Pillsbury Grand biscuits, into two layers. Flatten each layer to form 4-inch circles.

Create the filling by combining chopped apple pie filling with cinnamon. Use 1 cup of chopped apple pie filling and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

To assemble the bombs place a tablespoon of the filling on each biscuit circle fold over pinch the edges to seal them and then roll them into balls.

Prepare your air fryer by spraying its basket with nonstick spray.

Next, cook the balls in the air fryer at a temperature of 350°F for 8 to 9 minutes. Until they turn golden brown. You may need to cook them in batches depending on their size.

Once cooked dip each bomb in melted butter (about half a cup) followed by rolling it in the sugar-spice mixture.

Serve these treats at room temperature and enjoy!
