Apple Cupcakes

Adapted from What the Fruitcake?!

3 Tb. room temp unsalted butter
3/4 c. unsweetened apple sauce
1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 egg, room temp
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
assorted spices (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, etc.)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners (they must be cute). In large mixing bowl combine sugars and butter until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. In small bowl mix dry ingredients. Beat in 1/3 of flour mixture until just combined, add half the applesauce, 1/3 of the flour, half the applesauce and the last 1/3 of the flour, mixing in each in between.
Fill your liners, and bake for 18-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

I tried to make a buttercream, I really did. Thank god I happened to have some pre-made Pillsbury cream cheese frosting on hand. Not the best stuff I know, but it worked. I added applesauce and vanilla to it, just to make a little bit different.
