I must try it, it can be delicious..


I made this today for Christmas dinner and my family loved it. Only thing I did different was not use a mixer as I didn't have one (that worked) I blended by hand and it turned out wonderful. Thank you for this recipe it is a keeper. ;)b


This is a lot more delicious than my picture leads to believe. They are soooo good. I made them without the margerine and used water to boil them instead of applesauce, but they were still great. Everyone who had them at our Christmas dinner loved them.
