1 cup softened butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vanilla
1 (16-ounce) can applesauce
2 teaspoons soda
4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground allspice
Cream sugar and butter; add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Sift flour, cinnamon, and allspice into a separate bowl.
Heat applesauce; remove from heat and add soda. Add applesauce and flour alternately to butter and sugar, mixing well after each addition.
Place batter in greased muffin pans and bake for 15-20 minutes in 350 degree preheated oven. When done, roll in powdered sugar. This batter will keep in the refrigerator for several days.
Makes 7 dozen miniature muffins.
p.s. If you want to make these a little lighter, try substituting light butter and 4 egg whites for the regular butter and 2 whole eggs.
