Core, peel and cut apples and place in bowl with lemon water to keep from browning. Dry apples when removed from water with paper towels. Flatten biscuits out one at a time and wrap around apple halves. Cover top completely and just barely tuck under apple. (You have to work with the dough to get it to cover). Place apples in a prepared pan coated with cooking spray. Combine the next five ingredients in a bowl and drizzle evenly over the apples. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 20-30 minutes. Baste with mixture from pan halfway through cooking time. Dumplings should be golden brown and apples soft. Let cool and remove to plate and garnish with a dollop of Cool Whip and fresh mint if you have it.
