Apple Crisp ala Microwave

Apple Crisp ala Microwave
6 cups peeled, cored and sliced cooking apples
1 T lemon juice, optional

6 T butter
¾ cups packed brown sugar
¾ cups quick-cooking oats
½ cup flour
1 t cinnamon

6 servings

Place apples in an 8” glass baking dish.  Sprinkle with lemon juice. 

Melt butter in small mixing bowl at High power 1-1 ½ minutes.
Stir in remaining ingredients into the butter until crumbly.  Sprinkle over apples evenly; press down lightly.  Microwave at High  8 minutes.  Rotate dish ½ turn (if your microwave doesn’t have a turntable).  Microwave another 6-8 minutes til apples are tender. 

Serve warm, cold, plain or topped with whipped cream or ice cream.

My kids always doubled the topping.  It will sometimes bubble over onto the microwave plate.  Just pick it up and plop it back onto the crisp…just be careful because it is hot.
