Microwave Apple Crisp
Mom's melt-in-your mouth delicious recipe.


6 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced

2 teaspoons (tsp) lemon juice

cup all-purpose flour

cup rolled oats (such as Quaker Oats)

cup granulated sugar

cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

tsp grated nutmeg

1/8 tsp ground cloves

1/3 cup unsalted butter


Place apples in large bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice. Toss to coat. (This is to keep apples from turning brown.) Arrange in generously buttered 10-inch microproof and ovenproof deep-dish pie plate and set aside.

Place flour, oats, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in medium bowl and stir until blended. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over apples, covering apples completely. Microcook on high 6 minutes. Rotate dish one-half turn and microcook on high 6 to 8 minutes or until apples are tender.

Remove from microwave oven and place under preheated broiler 3 to 4 inches from heat source. Broil about 2 minutes or until top is crisp and browned. Serve warm or chilled with ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
