Desperation in the Kitchen: Applesauce Puffs

I was stalking through one of my favorite blogs, Raising Arrows, and found a recipe for something called Applesauce Puffs.

This was awesome because I have entirely too much applesauce in my house. We can't eat that much applesauce. A few years ago, I made crockpot apple butter, but I didn't want to fire up the crockpot and was really in the mood for something else (not porkchops and applesauce, I have a weird no-fruit-and-meat rule).

I had all of the stuff needed for these...except the Bisquick, so I sent husband and one of his friends to the grocery store to get it, only to have him call me a few times, saying "All I can find is pancake mix." (Can you tell Gabe doesn't go to the grocery store much?)'s the recipe, swiped from this awesome blog.

Applesauce Puffs


2 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup sugar, divided
3 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
2 Tablespoons oil
5 Tablespoons melted butter

Here's what you do.

*Combine Bisquick, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon

*Stir in applesauce, milk, egg and oil until well mixed.

*Fill greased muffin pan 2/3 full

*Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes

*Meanwhile, mix the remaining sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl

*Melt your butter, and put that in a different bowl. Make yourself a little work station

*Take your delicious-smelling puffs out of the oven

*Dip hot puffs in melted butter, then the cinnamon sugar

*Watch your husband devour 3 or 4 before you have a chance to blink

These were delicious. It made 12 big puffs. Ella is already asking me to make them again.
