Sometimes you want apple pie without baking a pie. Enter the Apple Crisp. The best part about this recipe is that you cook it in the microwave. You can be spooning apple pie into your mouth in about 15 minutes!
No pictures this time ... I'm sorry. But here's what you do:
Spray an 8x8 glass dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Peel and thinly slice 6 apples. Mine were on the small side and worked perfectly. Layer them in the glass dish. Pour 1/4 cup of water (or a little less) over the apples.
In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 a box of dry yellow cake mix, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. Toss together well. Then dump most of it on the apple slices. Mix the apples a bit to spread out the dry mix. Top with reserved dry mix.
Then, slice a stick of butter into many "pats" and randomly place them all over on top.
Stick the mess in the microwave and cook for 12 minutes. Let it cool for about 5 minutes and then dig in. It's even more delicious if you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
