Aunt Kathy's Squashy Applesauce

My sister-in-law made this recipe on our last trip home to NY and my kids loved it!
I swapped out butter for evoo, and the brown sugar for agave syrup to make it a little 'healthier'.
My kids call it "Squashy Applesauce" and it is delicious served as a side to any main meat course.
