Microwave Apple Crisp

Today was an unusually hot day for this time of year.
Not wanting to heat up the regular oven I decided to
cook this apple crisp using the microwave oven.
The apples got nice and soft while the topping
firmed up into a crisp that was good enough tasting.
Served along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
8 tablespoons butter, softened

In a microwaveable bowl,
cut up three Granny Smith apples
sprinkle with white sugar,
ground cinnamon and salt.
In a separate bowl combine oatmeal,
brown sugar and softened butter
until a crumb mixture is formed.
Sprinkle crumb mixture over apples,
cover bowl with a paper towel
and microwave on high for about
ten minutes or until done.
