This was a staple dessert when I was a kid. We always had plenty of home-canned applesauce on hand, so that was the basis. An egg white and whipped cream were folded together with the applesauce. Today I make it with Splenda rather than sugar, but it should be fundamentally SIMPLE. A dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg: fine. But if it takes longer than it takes to combine good applesauce with beaten egg white and whipped cream, you're doing it wrong.
