Gingerbread Jammies

There is nothing like the smell of gingerbread to make your home smell like Christmas. I like to make these in the morning before I start pulling out the Christmas decorations.

Gingerbread Jammies

1 c. applesauce
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. dark brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/3 c. raspberry jam
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tb. sugar

Line or grease 12 muffin cups. Blend applesauce, oil, brown sugar, and egg. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, and cloves. Beat until just combined. Spoon batter into liners, filling 1/2 way. Spoon 1/2 tsp. of jam on top of each. Cover with remaining batter. In small bowl, combine the 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 2 Tb. sugar. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp. on top of each muffin. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
