I have been substituting applesauce for the fat in recipes like this for years and wanted to pass on a tip. Use baby applesauce -- the texture is creamier/smoother. There is no added sugar (like natural applesauce) but the fact that it is pureed it mixes better and bakes better than using regular applesauce. Sometimes when you put regular applesauce on a plate you get a slight separation and a little puddle of liquid as it pools, but with the baby applesauce/puree this does not happen.

I have also used baby prunes instead of the applesauce. You don't taste the prunes, used this in chocolate cake. Same prinicple as the applesauce.

Can't wait to try the cream cheese ones, thanks for the recipes Amy.
