In a saucepan, heat the pie filling with water, lemon juice, and spices.
Prepare cake mix batter according to package instructions.
Place six greased 8-ounce baking dishes on a large baking sheet. Spoon about 1/3 cup of apple filling mixture into each baking dish. Top each with about 1/3 cup of spice cake batter. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Pour remaining batter in a greased and floured 9-inch square pan and bake for 25 minutes. Serve warm cobblers with whipped cream or ice cream. Frost the cake with cream cheese frosting, if desired.
