    I did everything just as the recipe said, put it in the microwave for 8-9 minutes JUST like it says, and 5 minutes in it was smoking and when I opened the microwave it was black. This is trash

    This recipe was delicious! It took under 20 min. from start to finish and I peeled my apples. I was skeptical that the topping would get crisp in the microwave, but I was did! This will make a regular rotation on our menu.

    I prepared this delicious recipe tonight and claim it a winner. Not only quick and easy but delicious. I substituted Splenda brown sugar and halved the recipe for the two of us. It only took 9 minutes in the microwave and it was ready. In the future I will have to make the entire recipe. it was that good. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor

    This is the best microwave apple crisp recipe you will find! Unlike others this doesn't get soggy in the microwave. The addition of broken graham crackers adds the little bit of crunch that an apple crisp needs. I began making this apple crisp recipe 20 years ago after attending a 'product home show' party. It is quick and easy to put together. Out of laziness I do not peel my apples and it still turns out wonderful. Now my mom and mother in law only use this recipe too!
