Quick-Baked Apples




Something new for breakfast or a nice warm snack for blustery evenings.

Put in microwave-safe bowl and cover loosely with wax paper. Microwave for approximately 2 minutes per apple at high power. Let stand for 5 minutes. Just before serving spoon juices from bottom of bowl over apple.
