Making your own Apple Pie Spice is super easy. There are tons of different variations out there. I based mine off of an old Apple Pie Recipe and added cardamom because I LOVE it. This is not just for making Apple Pies either. I use it often in my Spiced Peanut Dipping Sauce. I also use it in my super simple Fried Apples recipe (which I toss on oatmeal, pancakes and my favorite...vanilla coconut milk ice cream). A single batch of this should last you a good while.
Spices:1/2 cup ground cinnamon
2 TblSp ground allspice
4 tsp ground nutmeg
4 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground cloves
- Put all spices into a jar (I love to re-use my Maranatha Almond Butter jars for stuff like this...so easy to reach a measuring spoon in and scoop what you need or your fingers if you just need a pinch).
- Close lid, and rotate jar until spices are well mixed.
