    I LOVED this recipe. I added a touch of nutmeg with the cinammon and used splenda brown sugar to reduce the calories even further. Just like apple pie without the crust (and added fat). I plan to make this dish for Christmas and will add some pecans. - 12/2/08

    Here is a more simple version of the baked apple. Core apple place brown sugar & cinnamon in core. Notice that I omitted the butter. put in microwave safe dish, cover with paper towel or glass lid. Microwave to desired consistency. I like mine slightly crisp so it takes about 1.5 minutes. - 5/31/09

    I use a brown sugar substitute and it tastes great (and if pressed for time, you can chop the apples, mix with the cinnamon, margarin, and sugar or sugar substitute and throw it in the microwave for a couple minutes til tender - great topping for diet friendly ice cream or by itself) - 11/27/07
