Puree them together, I used a hand blender for this part, and mixed it until it was creamy. Now here is where you can customize it to your own liking: the reason my measurement of brown sugar was odd, with the extra 2 tablespoons is that I wanted it slightly sweeter. Half a cup is a starting point. Add sugar until it's what you like. You can also add another tablespoon of maple syrup as well. I wanted mine tangy, tasting more like cream cheese than actual pie filling, and this is what this recipe delivers. Sweeten it up if you want it so.
Serve with spicy cookies or graham wafers. For kids Teddy Grahams are always a hit and the perfect size for little hands. I went straight for the ginger cookies and didn't look back.
