Microwave Fruit Cobbler
Being in Arizona, and it still being blasted hot, I am choosing to NOT use our oven very much, really at all! Â It just heats up the house way too much, and we have a utility plan that we get charged almost 4 times as much to use electricity between certain hours of the day, for us that is 3 pm – 6 pm. Â So, I steer clear of the kitchen until about 6 pm each day. Â Of course since I am not using the oven, all I can think of to make INVOLVES the oven, so I have to force myself to find ways around that, and use primarily the stove top, microwave or toaster oven.
Anyway, I really wanted a warm and hearty dessert the other day, and I remember my Mom mentioning a recipe she had, and uses all the time, for an Apple Crisp that you cook in the microwave! Â Sweet! Â The best part is you can change it to peaches or blackberries, and it all works just the same. Â I chose to go for Peach, as being summer, peaches just sounded good.

1/2 cup butter, melted
Prepare apples to fill a microwave safe dish (round is you have one).
Finely chop graham crackers. Â (I just put them in a ziploc bag and smashed them with my fist. Â You could pulse them in a food processor as well) Â Combine crumbs, sugar, oats, flour, and spices.

Spoon mixture over apple slices.
Microwave on HIGH 12-15 minutes or until apples are tender; turning dish after 6 minutes if there is not a carousel in the microwave.Â Cool slightly.Â Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
