Apple Pie Bombs A La Mode [+ Video]

8 Reviews

It’s not fall until you’ve made apple pie bombs a la mode with creamy vanilla ice cream and glazed apples all over the tops. I love fall dessert recipes!

What Apples Are Best For Apple Pie?

The best apples for baking keep their structure, which keeps the chunks of fruit from turning into bland pockets of apple mush after spending some time in the oven.

Granny Smith apples are generally our go-to baking apple, but here are six others that bake well: Jonagold, Honeycrisp, Braeburn, Mutsu, Winesap, and Pink Lady.

In one day I made more fried food than I even care to admit. It was bad. But, I hate getting a pan of oil going on the stove so when I fry recipes for the site I like to slam it all out in a couple days of testing so that I can get as money things done in one batch of oil as possible. And it’s hot out which was adding to the nasty while I stood in the kitchen and fried food. I seriously think I was sweating oil by the end of it. So technically you all owe me because these apple pie bombs a la mode that were inspired by a recipe I did for Pillsbury were to die for and now you all can enjoy them too.

But really, you guys should pin the heck out of it as a thank you. 🙂 Just kidding.

Can Apple Pie Bombs Be Left Out Overnight?

These apple pie bombs can be kept covered with plastic wrap or foil at room temperature for up to two days. After that, they can be stored in the refrigerator for two more days.

They really are so good and anything that is served a la mode style is Cade’s favorite so he was happy to offer up a little foot massage to show his appreciation. And while he rubbed my feet we struck up a little conversation about ice cream. I’m probably the wrong person to talk to about ice cream because I’m not at all an expert like Cade is, but we were chatting about what the best vanilla is. Is it french, slow churned, Tillamook, Kirkland, Custard, or homestyle? What do you all think?

What Oil Is Best For Deep Frying?

Canola oil and peanut oil are the best oils for deep frying because of their high smoke points-meaning they can reach a higher temperature before they smoke.

It's not fall until you've made apple pie bombs a la mode with creamy vanilla ice cream and those glazed apples all over the tops. I love fall dessert recipes!


  • 2 apples peeled and chopped in 1" pieces
  • 1 can biscuits each circle pressed out and cut in 4 pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • oil for frying
  • cinnamon sugar
  • vanilla ice cream


  • Heat a dutch oven filled 1/3 full of oil over medium heat.
  • Place the apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Stir everything together and heat again for 30 seconds or until tender.
  • Using a small spoon, scoop an apple piece with a little of the sauce onto a flattened piece of biscuit.
  • Pinch all of the edges up together and set aside while you repeat with the remaining pieces.
  • Carefully place 3-4 apple pie bombs in the oil, turning occasionally until golden on each side.
  • Remove to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Repeat with all dough.
  • Place the cinnamon sugar in a bowl, toss each pie bomb in the sugar and pile on a large plate.

And while we are talking fall things, check out the awesomeness that we just discovered. Yes, I know we live in Lehi and everyone has loved on Cornbelly’s for ages, but we weren’t sure if it was really worth it. Well we had the opportunity to hop on a helicopter before the work day began and tour over Thanksgiving Point and Cornbelly’s and guys, it’s awesome! Cheney family close up with characters

It was so fun for our little one to meet the Tin Man and Dorothy and don’t worry they are totally pulling out a fun event in a couple of weeks that you’ll for sure want to be a part of. Stay tuned for more info, but in the meantime, at least mark your calendars for :


Everything is so clean and well kept and most of all fun. See the yellow? That’s an actual jumping thingy! It’s all full of air and the kids jump on it. And see off to the right, the big huge rocking chair?


Isn’t the maze amazing?! How can Brett, the founder do such an amazing job?! We cannot wait to go with the whole family and if you see us there, please say hello!!

  • I’d love to make these, but I don’t use pre-made dough, and I don’t have a microwave. So … can you suggest any adjustments? Especially a dough recipe that would work? Thanks!!!

    • Hi Diane! Any dough recipe will work great…bread dough, cinnamon roll dough, biscuit dough. Here is a link to our cinnamon roll dough recipe: https://ohsweetbasil.com/worlds-best-cinnamon-rolls-recipe/
      For the apples, you can just cook them on the stove top in a low sauce pan.

  • I am a little confused, are you suppose to cut each biscuit into 4 pieces? It looks like you just use one biscuit per bomb in the video?

    • Reply
    • Hi Barbara! I apologize for the confusion! You can do either one depending on how “bready” you want them to be. 🙂 Enjoy!

  • Are you taking one biscuit and cutting it into quarters and then rolling it into a circle?

    • Reply
    • I’m opening the biscuit up and then cutting it, though you can make it thicker and leave it as one biscuit. 🙂
