What You Need To Make This Easy Cherry Pie Bites Recipe?
Cherry Pie Filling: It’s the star of the show! I always search for a filling that’s luscious and full of chunks because each bite should feel like a burst of cherry heaven. Occasionally I’ll sprinkle in a hint of cinnamon or a touch of vanilla, to the filling for some added warmth and depth.
Crescent Roll Dough: This is our weapon for flaky crusts that taste just like homemade. I adore how effortlessly it wraps around the filling creating the pocket of happiness. If you’re feeling adventurous try brushing the dough with butter and a sprinkle of sugar before baking to achieve a sweet crust.
Powdered Sugar: This is what we use for our glaze, which adds that touch of magnificence to our bites. It brings the amount of sweetness without overpowering the cherry flavor. To ensure a drizzly perfection I prefer sifting my sugar to avoid any lumps in the glaze.
Milk: It may seem like a simple ingredient. It plays a crucial role in achieving the perfect consistency, for our glaze. Sometimes of milk I substitute cream for a richer glaze or add a drop of almond extract to introduce an extra layer of flavor that pairs beautifully with cherry.
Steps To Make Easy Cherry Pie Bites:
Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to 375F. Grab your muffin tin and give it a good spray with nonstick cooking spray – this is key for easy removal of the bites.
Step 2: Unravel the crescent roll dough. Gently place each piece into the muffin tins, ensuring the broader end forms the base.
Step 3: Now, the fun part – scooping the cherry pie filling! Be generous with this; about 3-4 heaping tablespoons per bite will give you that perfect, gooey center.
Step 4: Time to get crafty with the dough. Fold it over the filling, creating a little parcel of cherry goodness.
Step 5: Bake these beauties for 13-14 minutes. While they’re baking, mix powdered sugar and milk in a bowl to a smooth, drizzly consistency.
Step 6: Once baked, take a moment to admire your work, then drizzle each bite with the glaze.
For a burst of flavor that perfectly enhances the cherry filling consider incorporating a touch of lemon zest into your cherry pie bites. Simply mix in a teaspoon of lemon zest, with the cherry pie filling before spooning it into the dough. This will enhance the taste profile in a way. The citrus hints from the lemon zest will enliven the cherry flavor providing a twist with each bite. This small addition creates a distinction lending your cherry pie bites a touch that is certain to leave an impression!
