applesauce cupcakes w/ brown butter cream cheese frosting

Applesauce Cupcakes
(recipe from The Apple Barn in Pigeon Forge, TN)

1 C butter
2 C sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 C applesauce
2 t soda
4 C flour
1 T cinnamon
1 T allspice
1 T vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter & sugar; add beaten egg. Heat applesauce; stir in soda. Add alternately with sifted four, spices, & vanilla to cream mixture. Bake in greased muffin tins until light brown, approximately 15 to 20 min. Batter will keep covered in refrigerator for several days.

Browned Butter and Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 cup butter, browned in skillet
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
3-4 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla

Beat well. I say 3-4 cups of powdered sugar because I can’t remember how much I used! But obviously, you want it to be a good spreading or piping consistency.

And if I were a good blogger, I would have taken a picture, but I didn’t. 🙂 Enjoy!

I have a wondeful husband, five incredible kids, a sweet yellow lab, and we live in a lovely house in a small town. I throw the occasional temper tantrum, love good food, bake drool-worthy treats, and have a love affair with French-pressed coffee, mountains, and the North Shore of Lake Superior.
