Microwave Apple Crisp

"When my siblings and I were young, we loved it when our mom made this old-fashioned-tasting treat," recalls Sharon Missel of Penfield, New York. "Now I frequently fix this comforting dessert for my family."

    Easy, quick and good! To save time we didn't peel the apples. Within minutes the house smelled great. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home I love preparing classic dishes that are great tasting but easy to put together.

    I cut this recipe down to 1 serving, but didn't adjust for time. Apples came out rubbery, and topping was hard. Flavor was still very good though. I will try again, but remember to change the cook time.

    So easy and delicious. I used Jonathan apples. I topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
