Cherry Pie Aebleskiver

Cherry Pie Aebleskiver - Danish Pancake Puffs filled with a cherry center and then topped with ice cream!
I heard that today is National Cherry Pie Day! I hope that’s true, however, even if it’s not, you can still enjoy these Cherry Pie Aebleskiver. Ever had Aebleskiver before? No, that’s okay, don’t worry. They are little Danish Pancakes cooked in a special pan that gives them this round sphere shape. 
I’ve filled them with yummy cherry pie filling and they were wonderful. Then I added a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream and turned them into dessert!

Mini Pancake Puffs stuffed with a cherry center. It's a fun treat! enjoy some Aebleskiver for dessert!

First off, I want to let you know that I’ve started working with Lucky Leaf Pie Filling and I’m excited to have this dessert be my first post for them. You’ll be seeing a few more posts in the coming months featuring Lucky Leaf products. 

Top your Aeblskiver with ice cream for a wonderful dessert. These pancake puffs are full of cherry pie filling!
To make aebleskiver you’ll need to get this special pan. The pan has six cavities that you add the batter to and then gradually flip the pancake inside to give it a sphere shape. I found that I got a better circle with just flipping it once instead of trying to make multiple turns. 
I also preferred to add half the batter then a cherry, then the remaining batter instead of all the batter followed by the cherry. By covering the cherry it helped to seal it inside of the pancake. 

Aebleskiver a la Mode! Cherry pie filled pancake puffs are perfect for dessert tonight!

Danish Pancakes are really a breakfast treat and I’ve seen them with other seasonal fruits and nuts. Over on Dieter’s Downfall, I stuffed them with peanut butter cups! Talk about decadent!

I guarantee that if your family loves pancakes, they’ll really enjoy Aebleskiver.

Cherry Pie Aebleskiver

by Karyn Granrud
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Keywords: breakfast
  • 1 can Lucky Leaf Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

A la Mode

  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Cherry Pie Glaze
  • Cherry
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl stir together the milk and egg yolks until well combined. Add to flour mixture and stir until combines, smooth, and no lumps remain.
In a small bowl beat egg whites with an electric whisk until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whipped egg whites into batter, leaving a few puffs of egg white. Do not over-beat.
Place an Aebleskiver pan over medium heat; lightly brush each cup with oil. When the oil sizzles, fill the cavities half way, add a cherry to the center, then top off with more batter. With chopsticks or a fork, gently pull the cooked side to the side allowing the raw batter to pool to the bottom of the cavity to cook. Try to completely turn the dough ball in half to get a good sphere shaped ball. You can turn them in three increments, but when I did that I ended up with more of an open clam shell looking ball. Continue rotating and cooking until they are evenly golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted in their centers comes out clean.
When the aebleskiver is cooked through, remove from the pan and store in a 200 oven until ready to serve. Add more oil to the cavities before each addition of batter.
To turn this breakfast treat into dessert, top a bowl of warm aebleskiver with ice cream, cherry glaze and a top it with a cherry.
For the Cherry Glaze, mix equal parts milk, cherry pie filling (without the cherries) and powdered sugar over low heat to melt. Whisk until it’s thoroughly mixed and at a thin consistency.

Easy Cherry Pie Thumbprint Cookies

It’s time to start baking for Christmas! Are you ready? This is a Cherry Pie Cookie recipe I got from Lucky Leaf and I’ve plated them up to deliver them with my beautifully personalized Christmas mini booklet card from Minted.  
In fact I am feeling so prepared for Christmas this year than I ever had before. Thanks to Minted, I’ve got my Christmas cards in hand with printed envelopes and I’ve got cookies in the freezer. I may not lose my mind in December.

I made several batches of these easy cookies – Cherry, Blueberry, and Apple. I also made a chocolate chip cookie crust as well. Yes, they were delicious and I can’t wait to add them to  may cookie platters.

My husband liked the apple pie cookies, my daughter enjoyed the blueberry pie cookies, and my favorite were the cherry cookies. Although, I’d like to try them with the strawberry and the cranberry apple pie filling. I bet those would be good as well!

The Minted booklet cards and ornaments that I ordered came out so perfectly! I think the best part is that all of my envelopes came pre-addressed for me. That saved me a night of sitting down writing them out. Such a time saver.
