EASY Baked Apple Slices
4 cups of peeled, sliced apples - use apples that cook up well, like Fuji or Jonagold
3 Tbsp sugar
A sprinkle of cinnamon
1 Tbsp maple syrup
Put apple slices in a glass bowl. Sprinkle on top the 3 Tbsp of sugar. Add a light sprinkle of cinnamon.
Bake in microwave oven for 5 minutes on high heat. Adjust the time for your microwave and how many apples you are doing. Ours has a powerful high setting so 4 cups of apples only takes 5 minutes. If you use more apples, you will probably need to cook it a little longer. I suggest starting with 5 minutes and testing for doneness with a fork. If it needs more cooking time, give it more.
When done, remove and mix so the sugar coats well all the apple pieces. Add maple syrup to taste, about 1 Tbsp. Delicious with whipped cream on top, or with vanilla ice cream on the side.
