Applesauce takes the place of butter to make these very low-fat! --- feel free to add in some raisins.

What a great recipe. I was looking for something to use up about 12 small plums. I made the recipe as indicated but added 2 teaspoons vanilla and the diced plums to it. It could easily be used as dessert just add some vanilla icecream or cool whip.
