Tips

  • No apples on hand? Try swapping fresh pears or peaches and adjust cooking time as necessary.
  • Microwave times may vary. After the first two 1-minute times, cook 30-60 seconds at a time until apples are tender. Then uncover and cook 30-60 seconds to glaze.
  • Top with chopped nuts or dried fruit for added flavor and texture.
  • This recipe can easily be multiplied to feed a crowd. Place all ingredients in a large baking dish and cover with foil. Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes, or until apples are soft and can easily be pierced with a fork. Uncover and cook for an additional 5 minutes to thicken the liquid.
