These are so easy, and yet so delicious. My kids love eating them, and I love making them.  They can be changed out with any flavor this is a great beginner air fryer recipe!


  • 1 can Pillsbury biscuits
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 45 tablespoons milk


  1. Start by removing the biscuits from the can.
  2. Use the back of a spatula, to make a hole, or simply press your finger in, widen the circle to get a few tablespoons of filling, per biscuit.
  3. Spoon in the filling.
  4. Set on the tray ( I could fit four) or in the air fryer basket. (make sure both are sprayed with olive oil, otherwise, your pastry will stick)
  5. Set in the oven, and set the temperature to 320 degrees F, for 4 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, make the icing, mix together the powdered sugar and milk, mix (and add in more milk) until it’s easy to drizzle.
  7. Drizzle over the pastry.
  8. Plate, serve and enjoy!
