"Baked" cinnamon apples

2 sm. apples (about 1/2 lb.), cored and sliced (1/2 inch thick slices)
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon or nutmeg
2 tsp. butter
1 1/2 tsp. honey

Sprinkle apple slices with lemon juice, set aside.
In 9 inch microwavable pie plate, combine butter, honey and extract and microwave on high for 45 seconds until butter is melted.
Add apple slices, turning to coat with mixture, sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg, cover with plastic wrap, folding back one corner to allow steam to escape and microwave on high for 4 minutes.
(if your microwave doesn't rotate, turn the plate halfway through cooking)
Transfer apple slices to 2 individual plates or bowls reserving butter mixture in pie plate.
Return pie plate to microwave and cook on high, uncovered, for 1 1/2 minutes until mixture is slightly reduced.
Drizzle half of the butter mixture over each portion of apple slices.
This is a delicious side dish, stand alone dessert, sweet breakfast treat, ice cream topping, and pancake/waffle topping.
