How to make it

  • Get out a large saucepan. In it combine the brown sugar, cornstarch and ginger. Gradually add the tap water, stirring to dissolve the cornstarch. Add the raisins. Cook and stir until the mixture is boiling. Add the apples, lemon juice and margarine. Continue cooking until the apples are very hot and begin to soften some. Don't over cook though, or the apples will turn to mushy applesauce. A full five minutes of cooking the apples should be enough.
  • While everything is cooking, you can prepare the biscuit topper. First get out a medium sized bowl. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in the bowl. Add the margarine, egg and milk. Mix very well, forming a soft dough, or thick batter. Set aside.
  • Turn the apple mixture into a well oiled 2 quart casserole dish, or an 8" square pan. Drop the prepared biscuit dough onto the very hot apple mixture by large spoonfuls. The apple mixture has to be very hot so that the biscuit dough will start cooking right away. If the apple mixture is cold, it will make the cobbler dough pasty. Bake the cobbler at 425° for about 25 minutes. The biscuit topper will be golden brown and the apple filling will be bubbling. If you want to be fancy you can sprinkle a spoonful of sugar over top of the cobbler dough right before putting it into the oven. It makes the dish sort of pretty when it comes out of the oven. Serve it hot with whipped topping or ice cream for an extravagant dessert.
