  • Actually, you can replace the shortening in the batter with applesauce. In the "similar but different" :-P recipe that I submitted, I did so and using 1/2 cup applesauce instead of butter saves 56 calories, 7 grams of fat, including 4.7 grams of saturated fat, and 19 mg of cholosterol PER PUFF! - 2/2/12

  • my mom makes these for special occasions. I LOVELOVELOVELOVE them. There reqally isnt anyway to cut out the fat besides using a healthier butter (smart balance). They are so good! - 11/7/08
