Microwave Apple Crisp:
4 large Granny Smith apples -- peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
Spread the apples evenly in an 8-inch square glass baking dish. A deep dish glass pie plate will also work. In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, and allspice. Sprinkle this topping evenly over the apples.
Cook on full power in the microwave for 10 to 12 minutes, until apples can easily be pierced with a knife.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if desired.
