Cherry Pie Bubble Up Ingredients

How To Make Cherry Pie Bubble Up

Step 1: Preheat the oven and cut up your biscuits. Preheat your oven so you can get to eating this yummy Cherry Bubble Up sooner. After that, cut each of the premade biscuits into 8 pieces.

Step 2: Dice up your cream cheese. Cut your block of cream cheese into small 1/4″ pieces. This is much easier to do if you keep it in the refrigerator up until you’re ready to use it.

Step 3: Oil a baking pan and get to layering. In an oiled baking dish, disperse half of the cut-up biscuit dough and half of the cream cheese evenly. This doesn’t have to be perfect, but try to keep the saturation of cream cheese to biscuit dough fairly even.

Step 4: Sprinkle some seasoning and add the pie filling. Sprinkle half of the granulated sugar and half of the cinnamon on top of the cream cheese and biscuit layer. Open the can of the pie filling and add small tablespoon dollops all around the top of the other ingredients.

Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4. With the remaining biscuit dough, cream cheese, sugar, cinnamon, and pie filling, repeat the previous steps on top of the layers you already created.

Step 6: Bake it and prepare the glaze. Pop your baking dish in the oven. While your Cherry Pie Pop Up is baking, you can go ahead and prepare the glaze. In a bowl, pour the powdered sugar, milk, and almond extract together. Whisk it until it is well incorporated and it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Step 7: Let the cherry casserole rest and add the glaze. Remove the baking dish from the oven and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes. This prevents the glaze from melting as soon as it hits the hot ingredients and prevents it from absorbing straight into the biscuit dough.

Step 8. Serve and enjoy! Feel free to add chocolate syrup, whipped topping, or even a little powdered sugar to the top. The ideas are only limited by your level of sweet tooth.

Tips And Tricks

  • Cut the bites small. The trick to getting a little bit of all of the tasty flavors in every bite is to cut the pieces small. I cut my biscuits into 8 pieces each, but you can cut them even smaller if you like smaller bites of dough. The same goes for the cream cheese.
  • Omit the cinnamon. I prefer the woodiness of cinnamon to remind me of one of our breakfast favorites–cinnamon rolls. If you’re not a fan of cinnamon or want the tartness of the cherries to sing a little more, feel free to leave it out.
  • Swap out the filling. Cherries aren’t your jam? No problem! You can recreate this recipe with just about any pie filling that you prefer. Try blackberry, strawberry, blueberry, or even lemon!
  • Serve it over chocolate. This goes without saying, but chocolate makes everything better. Drizzle a little chocolate syrup over your plate before you scoop the Cherry Pie Bubble Up out and it tastes just like those chocolate covered cherries you buy around Christmas time.

How Long Does It Last?

The moisture from the sweet powdered sugar glaze along with the cherry pie filling makes this a dish you will want to indulge in pretty quickly after you prepare it. If it sits too long, the bits of biscuits have a tendency to get soggy. For the best bite, try to enjoy this Cherry Pie Bubble Up within 2-3 days of preparing it.
