This recipe was handed down from my grandmother who's father came from Denmark. The story goes that it was her father that taught her how to make these since her mother died when she was quite young. It makes lovely, fluffy, apple puffs of goodness. You may use a small piece of apple rather than applesauce, but my grandmother always preferred her own homemade cinnamony applesauce.
