Love the idea of doing these easy-peasy in the microwave! Yum!


Yum! I could see myself making this while snuggled up watching a movie.

Great recipie! It was like a mini apple crisp. I would say the only downfall is leaving the peel on the bottom of the apple. It made it hard to cut through using just a fork. I had to use a knife to cut it up first.
