Almond Biscuit Bombs are SO buttery, flaky, and delicious — and SO easy, since they start with prepared biscuit dough. Try them for breakfast or for dessert. You're gonna flip when you taste them!
Serves: 8
  • 1 can (8-count/16.3 ounces) Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits or similar product
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 ounces almond paste, grated
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk
  • sliced almonds for topping (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, mix softened butter and grated almond paste until evenly combined. Unroll the biscuits. Flatten each biscuit, place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter mixture in the center, and pinch together the edges of the biscuit to conceal. Place in your prepared pan with the seam down.
  2. Bake 17-22 minutes, or until deeply golden brown (let them get pretty dark on top to ensure they’re cooked all the way through). Cool at least 10 minutes while you make the icing. In a medium bowl, whisk powdered sugar, almond extract, and enough heavy whipping cream or milk to thin it to pouring consistency. Pour the icing over the buns and top them with sliced almonds if desired. Serve warm.
