Microwave Peach Crisp

1 large or 2 smaller ripe peaches*
1/3 cup quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
dash of nutmeg

Peel and slice the peaches into two custard cups (or one small microwave-safe casserole) until cups are almost full. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a glass measuring cup. Microwave** on high, uncovered, until the butter melts and the oats soften (60-70 seconds). Stir the topping and spoon over the peaches. Microwave uncovered for about two minutes (rotating the cups after one minute), until the peaches are soft. Serve warm or at room temperature, topped with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

*Variation: This recipe can be made with apples or pears, but add teaspoon cinnamon.

**Microwave ovens vary depending on wattage. The cooking time here is according to my microwave.

Cheddar Pear Cobbler

2 cans pear halves
2 Teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 Cup Unbleached flour
1-1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
6 Ounce sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Lemon juice

1/3 Cup Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Butter; melted

Heat the oven to 425 Degrees F. Drain the pears, reserving the syrup. Combine the sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in a saucepan and add the syrup and lemon juice. Heat until the syrup thickens then boil for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and add the pears. Spoon the pears and the syrup into a 9-inch square baking pan. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cheddar, mixing well. Add the butter and milk, mixing until well blended. Spoon the dough over the pears, then bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Serve hot with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream.

Apple Strudel

1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17.25-ounce package), thawed
1/3 Cup sugar
2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 Can (20 ounces) sliced apples, drained
1/3 Cup raisins
1 egg, beaten

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the pastry on a baking sheet and unfold. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Reserve 2 teaspoons of the sugar mixture. Add the apples and raisins to the remaining mixture; mix well. Let sit for about 2 minutes; drain off any excess liquid. Spoon the mixture down the center of the dough. Cut horizontal slits in the dough 1 inch apart down each side of the filling, cutting from the edges of the filling to the outer edges of the dough. Brush each 1-inch dough strip with the beaten egg and fold the dough over the apple filling, alternating sides as if braiding the dough. Tuck the last strips under the strudel. Brush the top of the pastry with the remaining egg, and sprinkle with the reserved sugar mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm, or allow to cool before serving.
