I live in Apple Country in Virginia, and look forward to early autumn and apple picking time. Right out of my Grandma's kitchen, warm Apple Cobbler served with cream or ice cream. Perfect for an autumn Sunday Dinner. DELISH!

In a one cup measuring cup, fill it to half a cup with sugar, add the two tbsp. flour, and mix well with a fork. Then add sugar to that mixture until it reaches the 1 cup mark. Pour into medium bowl and add another 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix, sugar, flour and spices with a whisk to blend. Sprinkle over apples. Spot with butter and add 1 cup of water to pour over apples.
