  2. Cover loosely with waxed paper. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes or until liquid is boiling. Allow to stand, covered, 5 minutes. Arrange rings on dessert plate. Serve warm with whipped topping.
This recipe can be doubled or tripled easily. To cook 2 apples at a time, increase cooking time to 3-1/2 minutes. To cook 3 apples at a time, increase cooking time to 5 minutes.

I agree. I love anything containing lemon be it food, kitchen cleaner or shampoo ! :)

I think the lemon bars would be appetizing.

Thank you for these. Desserts are not my best things usually because I put lots of effort into the main course and forget dessert until it's too late. So it tends to be ice cream. But these are fab ideas and would be impressive too.

These seem to be simple and tasty recipes. I usually have cake mixes and canned pie fillings on hand for 'emergency' desserts!
