Prepare as directed, except substitute one 15-ounce jar applesauce for the pumpkin.

A tip from our kitchen:

Cream Cheese Frosting

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, butter, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in powdered sugar to make a frosting of spreading consistency.

Browned Butter Frosting

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan heat butter over low heat until melted. Continue heating until butter turns a light golden brown. Remove from heat. In a large bowl combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Add browned butter. Beat on medium speed until spreading consistency, adding additional milk if necessary.
