Microwave Apple Crisp
I liked that this recipe had few ingredients, and included oatmeal in the topping. I used 6 small granny smith apples, instead of 4 large ones, and doubled the quantity of the topping. Also added some nutmeg along with the cinnamon and allspice. An apple corer saved a lot of time getting the peeled apples sliced (not too thin, or the filling turns to mush). It all fit in an 8x8 clear glass baking dish. I microwaved it for the full 12 minutes, and everything was cooked through and cooked evenly. The topping was nice and chewy, not too dry in my opinion.
Might decrease the time just a bit for firmer apples next time, as well as use a little less butter and sugar. I agree with a previous reviewer -- the topping did not really crumble, and had to be put in pats on top.
With ice cream and extra ingredients, there was enough for 10-12 people. A keeper!
