Chunky apple sauce instead of lemon curd

Normally I would mix a jar of lemon curd with cream to put in some sweet pastry cases but I was wondering if I could use a jar of chunky apple sauce with the cream instead?

For me, it would be a bit blah, just not a strong enough flavour. Berries instead?

Agreed, bubblegirlblack IMO if you were to use apple, it would need to be spiced apple. :-))

How about spicing the apple up with some cinnamon and ground cloves and put spoonfuls into the pastry case and then a dollop of cream on top with some cinnamon sugar sprinkled?

Thanks petal that sounds like a good idea.
Am now thinking I could mix in some passion fruit.

Trying to avoid going to the supermarket lol.

bubblegirlblack, your thought re passionfruit would be nice and another thought I've just had is a favourite fruit of mine - blackcurrants. If you have some blackcurrant jam, IMO that and a dollop of cream would be a nice filling for the pastry cases. :-))
