READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by CountryLady

This comes from the cookbook that came with the first microwave oven that I bought - way back in 1980. I've made it so many times that the page is stained!!

For being a microwave apple crisp - Its pretty good! The topping does end up crisp - butits more of a hard toffee consistency - but still tasty. If I make it again - I'll eliminate the lemon juice (it made the apples way too tart), I'll double the topping and also stir in some cinnamon with the apples. Overall - liked by my family of 3 but not LOVED.
