Chunky Applesauce


A little something I made Sunday but did not have the time to post...until now. Life certainly gets busy!  I love to bake and cook apples when the weather gets cold and tonight we are in for our first frost.  Maybe if you all have a few apples around this can be a night time snack with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...Taste just like Apple Pie A La Mode, without the crust! I guess that would save on a few calories.  ;  )  This smells amazing and your house will to!



Mmmm...Perfect on a cold night! 


I love this little tool...saves me so much time. I got this many years ago from Pampered Chef.

Apples in the pot...ready to be cooked!!
