Spiced Apple Cobbler

Peel, core and chop enough apples to fill a 2 quart casserole (about 6 or 7 apples) I like McIntosh apples best.
Put them in a big bowl, add a few squirts of lemon juice, some sugar, (about 2 tbsps. or to taste), and some sprinkles of ginger, All spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon... (all to your own taste). Mix well... taste a chunk of apple to see if it is enough spices for you ..... add a bit more if necessary...and mix well again.
Butter the casserole dish; fill with the some little dabs of butter here and there on top of some of the apples...put on spoonfuls of the sweet biscuit mix which follows.
Sweet Biscuit Dough Recipe
1 cup flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
Granulated sugar for sprinkle
In a bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter finely. Add milk all at once, stirring just until mixture forms a soft, sticky dough. Using large spoon, drop dough in heaping spoonfuls, evenly spaced, on top of fruit. Once you have it on ..spread it out a bit.. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Place dish on baking sheet in case of bubbling over. Bake in 375F (190C) oven for about 40 mintes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbling. Serve warm. A dollop of vanilla ice cream goes well with this.
