Baked Apples/Microwave


Large Whole Apples or Pears (If using pears, peel first)

For each piece of fruit:
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/8 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Butter or Margarine
2 Tablespoons Water


Core the apples or pears. With a fork pierce the skin of the apple several times so they won't burst during cooking. Stand the apples upright in a covered microwavable dish. Fill each core with brown sugar, cinnamon and butter or margarine. Pour the total amount of water around the fruit. Cover and microwave on High according to the following times. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.

1 apple 2-4 minutes
2 apples 4-5 1/2 minutes
3 - 4 apples 6-8 minutes


All microwaves cook differently. Test apples with a fork. They are done when the fruit is soft.
