As a rule I usually don't cook anything in my microwave, but I will make these little gems just that way from now on.
Oh my were these ever good! I had one lone Granny Smith apple that I wanted to do something with as it certainly wasn't enough for a pie. So, this is what I created. I will be making these often as we always have apples in the house.

The ingredients can easily be adjusted to your individual needs. My measurements are very close to what I used. I didn't measure as I often don't.

I hope you try them sometime, they were awesome with a scoop of ice cream.

Ingredients

I MADE JUST ONE STUFFED APPLE, DOUBLE OR TRIPLE INGREDIENTS TO YOUR NEEDS

1 Tbsp
each - chopped pecans, brown sugar, raisins or dried cranberries
1/8 tsp
ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp
maple syrup - divided
1 Tbsp
butter
1 large
granny smith or any tart apple

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small bowl, mix pecans or could use walnuts, cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins.

Core apple, making sure you widen the hole just a little for the filling to fit. Peel the apple 2/3 of the way from the top.
2
Place in a small microwave oven safe casserole. If the apple doesn't want to sit up straight, trim the bottom to flatten. Stuff with brown sugar mixture.

Drizzle with 1 tablespoon syrup. Cover and cook on high setting for 3 minutes, or until apple is tender. May take more or less time depending on the microwave. Mine took 3 minutes exactly.

While apple is cooking, heat remaining syrup and butter until butter is melted.
3
When apple is cooked, plate and drizzle with any remaining caramel type liquid from bottom of dish.

Pour maple butter sauce over the apple. Serve warm with ice cream.
