Step 1

375 degrees F.

Peel, core and slice the apples vertically into 8 slices each.

Squeeze the lemon into a bowl of water and add the apple slices to keep from turning brown.

In a medium saucepan, mix 1 cup water, 3/4 cup of the sugar, butter and vanilla.

Bring the sugar mixture to a boil over medium heat.

Separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Pat it out a little bigger.

Wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of apple, stretching the biscuit slightly to overlap, and seal on the bottom.

Place the wrapped slices, sealed-side down, in a 9- by 12- by 2-inch casserole dish.

Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices.

Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle the mixture over the tops of the wrapped apples.

Bake until golden brown, 35 minutes.
