A nice change from applesauce. My family loves when I use the almond option. We eat this as a side, topping on pancakes, or in any recipe that calls for applesauce. It will keep for about a 10 days in the frig and freezes very well.

My DH loved this recipe. I was able to whip this nice desert up in no time at all. Have already made a batch of this to freeze so that my DH can have this at a later time. Thanks for posting this for us to try.

I made a double batch of this sauce, one with the almond extract & the other without ~ The latter batch I used added to some homemade cranberry sauce I'd made the day before & the combo sauce was very tasty! Loved the sauce as written, too, & it was great served with turkey we had left over from several Thanksgiving gatherings! Thanks for posting this great recipe!
