This was at least two cups worth of sauce that i substituted for apple sauce in this applesauce custard pie. I mixed the sauce with the cup of sugar before realizing the sauce was added last, so i used a half cup of sugar to cream with the egg and butter.
Next time, i should cream the sugar & butter THEN add the egg. When i poured the mixture in with the sauce i realized i still had bits of butter unblended that had sunk to the bottom.
The pie didn't seem to set up as much as i expected: perhaps i should have reserved the juice that separated from the sauce. Still, quite festive and yummy. I'm thinking breakfast.....
