Before Lance and I married, I had never had "baked" apples. They have since become a staple in our house. Mainly because my in laws serve them at every meal we are invited to (well, not really, but a lot). I have kind of become addicted to them.
First, you need some apples. These came from a neighbors tree. Or you could buy some at the grocery store. Doesn't matter.
After you wash the apples, slice them.
Throw them in a bowl and add some pats of butter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Cover and microwave till soft. I usually check them at 5 minutes.
