For a quick and tasty holiday treat, cook an apple in the microwave.
Core and slice one apple. (I like to leave the skin on.)
2 Tablespoons of brown sugar
1 Tablespoon of sweet cream butter
smidge of cloves
smidge of ginger
(You may substitute any of your favorite nuts and spices)
Microwave for one minute. Stir to coat the apples with the buttery sugar mixture.
Microwave for one more minute (or until your apple reaches the desired softness.)
Top with a dollop of whipped cream, if you like.
