Mr. Hawthorne Semi-Ho's It. Deliciously.

Want a quick dessert without going to a lot of effort? Mr. Hawthorne shows you how.
First, he peeled and sliced a few apples, and drizzled honey and sprinkled cinnamon over top
Sprinkle some brown sugar over it.
Give it a handful of raisins and dot with butter. Mr. Hawthorne baked the fruit in the toaster oven at 250 degrees until the fruit settled about 1/4 to 1/3 from the top- 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with biscuit dough.
Mr. Hawthorne keeps a can of biscuit dough in the fridge for occasions such as these.
Spread the biscuit dough over the baked fruit mixture and slather butter on top.
A sprinkling of sugar.
Not just any sugar. I recommended he use turbinado sugar.
In case you don't know what turbinado is, it's sugar from the first pressing of the cane.
Extra virgin sugar, so to speak.
It has noticeably larger crystals than regular granulated sugar and is golden brown in color. Also, turbinado sugar retains the flavor of the molasses, a natural byproduct of the sugar process.
This went into a 300 degree toaster oven and baked until the biscuit was browned - about 15 - 20 minutes. It depends on your oven. Watch it.
Serve hot over ice cream.
Peach ice cream in this case.

The hard part is finding a simple biscuit dough to keep in the fridge. I be rolling out biscuit dough all the time, and fancy, flakey, buttery whatever just won't do. I might just have to take my last two cans and make some apricot fried pies. Sometimes semiho is the way to go.
