Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Stick with real butter or margarine for the best results! Vegetable oil spreads don’t work well in the sauce.
  • tip 2
    Applesauce Shortcake is as easy as topping cake squares with warmed apple pie filling, mounds of whipped cream and the sweet sauce.
