1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 cup cherry pie filling
1/4 cup powdered sugar (for dusting)
1 tablespoon milk (for glaze, optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (for glaze, optional)


Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to prevent sticking.
Prepare the Dough: Unroll the crescent roll dough on a clean surface. Separate the dough into triangles along the perforated lines. If the dough comes in a sheet, cut it into squares.
Add Cherry Filling: Place a tablespoon of cherry pie filling near the wider end of each dough triangle or square. Be careful not to overfill.
Form the Bombs: Roll the dough around the filling, starting from the filled end and working towards the point to enclose the cherry filling completely. Pinch the edges to seal. If using squares, fold the corners to the center and pinch to seal.
Bake: Place the cherry pie bombs on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each one. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed up.
Prepare the Glaze (Optional): While the pie bombs are baking, whisk together milk and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Gradually add powdered sugar, whisking until smooth. Adjust the consistency with more milk or sugar if needed.
Serve: Remove the cherry pie bombs from the oven and let them cool slightly. Drizzle with the vanilla glaze or simply dust with powdered sugar before serving.
