I made this earlier this evening for dessert. I hate peeling apples, so I only do it a few times a year for my husband's craving for apple crisp and apple pie. I used 5 fairly large Cortland apples, peeled 3 of them and left 2 of them unpeeled, just diced smaller. I tossed my apple chunks in cinnamon/sugar before putting the topping on. I also tweaked the recipe a bit and used 1/4 cup chunky peanut butter and 1/4 cup melted butter mixed. The PB gave it an extra boost and the peanuts gave it a nice, surprising crunch. Overall, I think the recipe is okay...I prefer an oven baked crisp over the microwave, even with the ease of the microwave. Honestly, once you've got the apple crisp prepared in the pan (and assuming you've pre-heated your oven) all you have to do is throw it in there to bake!
