Quick Pumpkin Applesauce

I was craving a pumpkin treat today, but didn't have time to bake anything. I decided to mix up a little pumpkin combination that turned out to be quite delicious. I loved how all the flavors blended and the raisins plumped up perfectly. Next time I have this, I might add some cranberries instead of raisins and maybe top it with a few graham cracker crumbs.


Easy Pumpkin Applesauce
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 tbsp raisins
dash of pumpkin pie spice
dash of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together and heat in microwave for 1 minute. If you use unsweetened applesauce, you may need to add a little sweetener.

I'll totally have to make some of this :) And back to your comment to me...I have family in Edison too! I grew up in South Orange (where Seton Hall University is) so that's where I was this past week :)

What a tasty idea! I sometimes bake with applesauce, and this would be a great and lean way to enhance the flavor in a batch of muffins :). I'd love to include your recipe on our blog, please email me if you're interested.

Thanks!
