2 baking apples, peeled, cored and halved
1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 cup orange or apple juice
15 oz canned pumpkin
Place apples, spices and orange juice in a covered glass container and microwave on full power until apples are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Mash apples and add pumpkin; microwave an additional 5 minutes. Puree in a food processor if you want the end product to be very smooth. Serve warm or refrigerate for later.
