An old-time dessert such as this is just as delicious today.

  3. Place over low heat. Cook, stirring until thickened. Stir in 2 Tbs. of the butter and lemon juice. Pour over apples.
  4. Mix remaining flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in remaining butter until particles are like cornmeal. With fork, stir in enough milk to make a soft dough. Spoon onto apples, making 8 biscuits.
